Blogging is 20 years old now

The Guardian notes that this month marks the 20th anniversary of the Weblog (article on Dave Winer).

The standard HTTP/HTML Web was and is great for 3-30-page ideas. Winer was perhaps the first person to see that the world needed some different technical standards to deal with three-paragraph ideas.

[I owe Winer a personal debt of thanks for it was his arrival at Harvard’s Berkman Center that resulted in me trying out the Weblog.]
