Sorry Deeje, I don’t see a world where web logs (in any form similiar to their current common implementation) replace email and message boards for online discussion and collaboration. Message boards wrapped in blogs? Perhaps. But the three forms of communication we’re discussing each have a distinct application. As you’ve said before, when you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Blogging (easy personal publishing, which harkens back to our days at Aldus and the revolution they and Adobe started 20 odd years ago in pre/press) will certain evolve and make an impact on how people share and discuss ideas… but I don’t see it as the proverbial second coming.
