I am impressed. AOL has stored ALL of our blogs. Somewhere there is a big computer holding all of our drivel, all of my Dribble, and it is all accessible.
But AOL is a business, and like all businesses, will eventually go away. I am not predicting their eventual demise, it is just, well, that's the nature of businesses. As wondrous and magnificent as it may be NOW, what about THEN?
Where will our journals be than?
And who cares?
Well, I do. In a burst of egomania, I want my blogs to be permanent, but I do not want to copy them all and print them. (I'm not THAT concerned.)
Is there a service somewhere that will copy and bind into volumes all the entries? Have any of you done this?
I am laughing at myself right now. What makes me think that bound copies would be any more permanent than electronic copies. I have just moved and had to get rid of a ton of stuff. What if I had big bound copies of my journal...and what makes me thank that anyone will want to read those old things in the future>
My grandmother used to make sculptures in COTTON. She chose that medium and praised it because is was NOT permanent. Strange idea...transient art. Maybe I should make Dribble more meaningful by erasing it. (Heaven no... I reject that idea)
Well, now I have rambled on until I have talked myself out of the idea after all.
