Journals

This isn't a weblog, I'm just not good/disciplined/free enough to record and link to relevant web content (brainmunchies is the closest to that). This is a journal. The distinction is purely artifical, but after finishing Fahrenheit 451 I'm feeling scared we'll forget everything if it's not written down. In truth, it would probably work the other way around - too much information that the importance of certain things gets lost. Embedded reporting fuelled the warnography craze for a while and now it's the Scott Peterson trial that the most important event of the moment. The irony is there - on the one hand I could complain about only ever getting a single point of view (that of the reporter), on the other I perceive the subject matter to be far more important than it really is (several vocal points of view, none of which necessarily agree).
