Weblogs are like fixed gear bikes. And fixed gear bikes are like weblogs.
It used to be that to have either, it took some work. You had to code html in something like notepad and upload it. Everything was code. It took an awfully long time. And it usually came out looking like shit. Now it is as easy as sending an email.
You had to tear down an existing road bike, or build one up from scratch. Usually took only a sort out of the rear wheel – not in and of itself a particularly high hurdle to clear. But, still, a fixed gear bike wasn’t something that appeared in every major bicycle manufacturer’s catalog. It was offered by very, very few. If you had one, it meant you had to go out of your way to obtain it. Now it is as easy as buying a loaf of bread.
Do I mind that everyone on the planet has a blog at their fingertips and a fixie beneath their legs? No. Not in the slightest. More people online. More people on bikes. We all win.
Times change. Things change. We are no longer what we once were. That is a good thing, truth be told. No one lives in a vacuum. Actions have consequences. Time marches on. Rust never sleeps. In the end, it means nothing, as the worms will feast upon us all.
