inessential: How to Be Wrong on the Internet
Blogging is, for me [Brent Simmons], part of the process of getting to the truth. Everything is provisional — it’s what I think now, and I might change my mind in a year. Or in a day. Or in a minute, when somebody posts (or tweets) more or better information or has a solid argument. And that’s the part I love. A recent example: while writing the Vesper sync diary I got a ton of great feedback that changed my mind on some things, and that feedback ended up making those articles better and it made the app better. The fun part is documentating all this. It’s learning-out-loud.
