Blogging & Independence

Dave Winer nails blogging

“One of the reasons I’m proud of it is that blogging was created without the lock-in you see in systems like Twitter, Facebook and though they’ll argue for sure, Buzz. Even Posterous, Tumblr and WordPress.com don’t give you easy ways off their servers. Blogging started without the concept of a single server, so there was no place to get off of. The whole point was to be as distributed as the web itself, to give people independence, to let billions of websites bloom. This is such an obvious feature of blogs that people don’t usually see it. But it’s there, and it’s hugely important.”

He is so right – Having your own blog is far better than been locked into the likes of Facebook.
