every once in a while, i am in the real world and talking to people about technology. rarely, that person reads my blog. when that does happen, and we end up talking about what i've worked on recently, it becomes difficult to not repeat what i've already posted in the blog. they'll end up saying something to the effect of 'yes, i already read that'. and in the back of their mind, they are saying 'quit wasting my time'.
alternately, if somebody doesnt read the blog and asks me what is going on ... i'll get pissed that i have to repeat myself. to their face, i start reciting the posted blogs with a smile. in the back of my mind, i'm thinking 'dont they know how to read'? and therein lies the true power of podcasting ... promoting illiteracy
