Oh... by the way, for the benefit of the international audience, here are the meanings (warning: satirical humor!) of the abbreviations used in Nelson's comments like KNS and WLE. :mrgreen:

Hahah... wonderful comment Nelson! Thank you for your thoughts. Yeah, the platform of blogs will die one day - its definite. At the rate technology is going now, I doubt I will be living on earth when I am 50 years old! Probably I'll be in Mars or Jupiter with my "thumb-communicator" (laptops would have evolved then into the size of today's thumbdrive!), but I will still be creating content! Heh. Technology.

I quote Mr. Daryl Plummer, managing vice-president of market analysis company Gartner Inc., as printed in Computer Times dated January 2nd, 2007, "...anyone who may want to try blogging will already have done so." KNS! This quotable blooper ranks high up there along with "The computer never goes beyond 640K RAM." WLE... Blogging is just another form of content creation. Education through blogging is just another metamorphosis. Ranting, complaining and talking about peanuts e.g. "You know what that auntie say about the weather blah blah blah..." are all short-term activities. They will die out, like Xiaxue when she reaches 50 (or your money back). OK, blogs may die out fine day, but content creation never dies, because "thoughts are things." - Napoleon Hill
