How's this, from a U.S. Anonymous, as a rationale of the blogosphere?
There is a freedom in this technology, and yes that freedom is under drastic attack from centralised powers that wish only to control. Thus control is anathema to me. The strength of the 'sphere is in its fragmentation. If I don't like a place, I don't go there. Places open up, places close down. Thats the strength of the 'sphere.
It is indeed. Have a lovely night.
