Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

public and private spaces

A couple of days ago Ray Ozzie was considering why he should use a weblog. In particular, he was wondering why it would be useful to have to "split his mind" between public and private expression (in particular, I suppose, regarding Groove Networks). Jon Udell from Byte replied in his own weblog with an excellent summary of the uses of a public space. After that response and several others, Ray decided that it was indeed worthwhile.

This is clearly a question that the weblogging community will have to address, and clearly, sooner or later: people are a bit afraid of "exposing" themselves through a weblog. Ray's question what, I think, a bit more abstract. But the larger issue remains in the background.
