death by paper cut

{August 12, 2006}   blogalisation

ever wondered what b.l.o.g. actually means? according to wikipedia, the term “web-log” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog,” was coined by Peter Merholz in 1999.

in hindsight, i think its apt that blog are named as such because it is g.l.o.b. in reverse; the first four letters of globe or globalisation. making the world a rapidly smaller place with the advent of the internet highway, blogs are integral to that effect in varying degrees.
