Somehow blogs seem like a one legged stool. They help people clarify and refine their personal voices. Important, necessary, but missing something. I've included some information on wiki's in this piece because I think they are another leg of this stool but I'm missing the perspective yet on what overarching concept and system will pull these and other communication elements together. Blogs are a step to a higher level, but what will the next level look like?
"Blogging is not only the simplest and quickest way to manage communication with a larger and widely distributed group, it is truly simple and quick. This is equally true for blog communication using text, images, audio or video."
"The term community applies to a community of one (the community of interacting thoughts in one's own head) and to the communities of larger numbers of interacting people (within a classroom, work team, or state or nation, etc.)."
COMMUNITY OF INTERACTING THOUGHTS IN ONE’S OWN HEAD
Blogging based on and interacting with ICT and other users (as never before in human knowledge processes) helps very much to the individual
convert etc. INFORMATION PIECES and KNOWLEDGE – explicit, and also tacit –
to evolve one’s knowledge space – a particle of eternal knowledge universe.
The Individual Blogspace means evolving quantity and quality of blogs which are more or less opened to team/collaborators/stakeholders/everyone. Before e-blogging, we had to write down something on tens and hundreds pieces of paper (items from books, journals, newspapers, from sources available in libraries etc.). We had to create notes necessary for papers, reports, databases containing thoughts and citations of authors, scientists, colleagues and many others.
The Web-enabled KNOWLEDGE ACADEMIES are on agenda. With blogs for PERSONAL DATABASES and PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT.
Tom, you are right that personal information can come back to bite blogger in terms of identity theft, harassment, reputation endangering mistakes in grammar and logic and more.
Knowledge evolves in one’s own head and every decides what to do.
