I have a lot of posts I’d like to get up before the New Year, but one thing I’ll note quickly is how revelatory the blogosphere has been.
One thing that can easily pass you by is the dearth of analytical ability in the world. When you talk to experts you can be confused into thinking that they are sharper than they are because they have been thinking and talking about the same things for a long time.
However, in the fast and furious world of the blogosphere it quickly becomes apparent how shallow much of that understanding is and how widespread the inability to transfer insights between domains is as well.
Obviously I wouldn’t be so crass as to name names but the overall pattern is impressive.
