As per TIME "I" am the Person of the Year , alongwith many others who have contributed to content on the Web . Web 2.0 was termed a hype , and has been termed as a "social experiment" by the TIME magazine. I guess the truth is somwhere in between.
I had a blog last year , but I did not blog about 2005 , however I am doing so for 2006. I guess I would blog more in 2007... I realize that I do take blogs seriously more than last year . Maybe TIME is not off the mark there !
Home pages were a rage in late 1990s, but did not go far due to several reasons . Blogs/YouTube/Flickr is providing a much bigger platform for self expression , so much so that mainstream media websites have folks on ther roll blog ! Its so easy write a trip report with pictures and videos thrown in without need a dedicated server at your end ...
But with practically no barriers for entry into the blogosphere, (except for an account and time and access to a PC) we have many opinions, many viewpoints and practically no regulator. Do people have the sense to discern facts from opinions ? Maybe 2007 would tell !
On a personal note , I felt that this year went by very fast , yes, faster than 2005 or 2004 ! While I have no resolutions for 2007, I do hope that I will accomplish what I set out do , I will set out to do what I can , and I have the sense to figure what I need and what I can do ! So help me God !
