From Thomas Friedman:
"It is impossible to imagine what it is going to be like in ten years when virtually everyone you know has a blog. But that is where we are heading. If you look at the Facebook.com phenomenon, an online social directory spreading virally in high schools and colleges, millions of young people now have a platform for telling their own stories." (Thomas Friedman, The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century, Release 3.0 [New York: Picador, 2007], 118.)
From Michael Frost:
"What all blogs have in common is the host's/author's basic belief that his or her life or thoughts about life are worth sharing with anyone who will log on. It's either the most astonishing universal display of narcissism or the most liberating opportunity for the ordinary and the everyday to be celebrated. On one level, it looks like the liberation of the ordinary, but at another level it's an expression of hyper-reality: it looks like we are meeting people via the Web, but really we're meeting only the acceptable persona that they want displayed to the world." (Michael Frost, Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Chritian Culture [Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 2006], 88.)
