Perhaps a chronically small audience is a blessing. For it seems that the more popular a blog becomes, the more some bloggers feel the need to post.
Katie Hafner’s writes this in an quintessential article on complusive bloggers and their lives. Her two page article based on her interview with various compulsive / non-compulsive bloggers, sometimes indirectly questions the need of blogging as she writes :
Where some frequent bloggers might label themselves merely ardent, Mr. Pierce is more realistic. “I wouldn’t call it dedicated, I would call it a problem,” he said. “If this were beer, I’d be an alcoholic.”
It’s well researched, well thought about article. Very genuine. If you are compulsive blogger you know why I saw this. Read it here at NY Times. You need a free userid /password to login to NY Times. Get one if you don’t have, for this same article will be quoted in many blogs, in the days to come.
PS: Thanks Anand for the tip. Here is the url for this article that I got through google news.
How India became the capital of the computing revolution :
This is a story about the global economy. It’s about two countries and one profession – and how weirdly upside down the future has begun to look from opposite sides of the globe. It’s about code and the people who write it. But it’s also about free markets, new politics, and ancient wisdom – which means it’s ultimately about faith.
Daniel H. Pink writes in this wired article, The New face of Silicon Age, about the changing phenomenon of outsourcing. Wait. You don’t have to think that this is yet another outsourcing information overload. The issue of outsourcing has been handled in a very unbiased way. Some might feel the bias being dealt with subtelty. But at this juncture of sheer biased articles from the international media, this is a very rational summary about both sides of the coin.
Though it is very descriptive in content and not totally analytical like economist types, this article is sure to open up a whole new world of truths. Atleast it attempts to do it.
A must read if you are in anyway involved with this outsourcing issue or not. Also read The Indian Machine by Chris Anderson, Editor in Chief of Wired.
