Tony Karrer

Dont Waste Your Time

Less than 1% gets to where it needs to get to in any other way than by electronic transfer – money to friends (bank transfer), documents to colleagues (emails, networks, Dropbox), sharing (tweets, blog posts, status updates, etc.).

I was stuck with candles (not too bad) and a book. So much of what I do these days, and what I produce, is digital. But what does this mean?

Electronic Papyrus

Over the last several years of blogging, I’ve searched for articles or studies that examine blogging from a more rigorous social science perspective and have found very little.
