Last week, Ton Zjilstra over in the Netherlands counted five years of his first blog. Some people have been at it longer, but Ton’s experience is significant for me because he got me thinking about blogs and communities of practice, a difficult but pervasive relationship, and provided a practical example. Then Lilia Efimova‘s attempts to build a framework for analysis and Mathias Röll‘s opinions did the rest, and I’ve been seeing blogs in a weird way ever since.
And yes, finally I started to blog. That’s your fault too, Ton :-). So thank you and congratulations (belatedly) on your five years of discovery.
