: Michael Koch’s Monoklon’s database blew up (“Die Datenbank des ‘Klons ist explodiert”) but before that unfortunate event happened, he wrote this and Horst Prillinger translated it:
“My main criticism of weblogs at the moment is that there are so few webloggers who actually have to say something. I want to read weblogs from people talking about the fields in which they are working. I want to listen to insiders, who are able to communicate their knowledge intelligibly and who, due to their extensive knowledge, can evaluate the current situation differently than the average layman.”
He’s right and traffic proves it: Another argument in favor of the nuclear nichefication of media. If it’s traffic I wanted, I’d be better off, as I’ve said before, concentrating on one topic and owning it (as is true in all media). But that would bore me, so I play the iconoclast (or ADD sufferer) and turn my focus to whatever I fancy.
