Dave Winer just put of a post about how he’s going to stop blogging.
His reasons: Blogging doesn’t need him any more?
I’ve never agreed 100% with Dave on things, which is okay because, well, he doesn’t know me and he’s a famous internet software developer. He said some things back in the FaceSpan days that I simply could not agree with and yeah, he can be petulant and sometimes awkward and sometimes I’m just demotivated to reading his blog…but I do come back. He’s a smart guy and maybe he’s right in that blogging doesn’t need him – maybe it never needed him – but I don’t think that’s a good reason not to blog. Blogging is cathartic in some ways and helps shape the blogosphere. Without his blogging we’d not have the full story on how Apple misrepresented RSS in iPhoto or how his new best friends at Microsoft are now not his best friends anymore. And it’s not the knowing that which is important, it’s the knowing why.
Anyway…that’s just my opinion.
