Blogging to cyberspace
A BBC news 24 report today on the Blogging phenomenon says there are now over 14,000,000 American's now blogging. Wow! Apparently the idea took hold during the American elections to promote candidates messages and captured the imagination of the public.
Howard Dean came from nowhere but had a fascinating weblog for his campaign: Dean for America (now not active) which millions read making him an instant household name. Hence the birth of political blogging.
Seems so much info is now going out in cyberspace that there are now many people who regularly read blogs as a craze, others use them as reference for research and more amazingly many professional blog readers (at least we have our own Tim Worstall).
The comments about cyberspace made me smile as my mind conjured up blogging bits and bites floating around for infinity just after listening to a documentary on Stephen Hawkings trying to disprove the arguments that have evolved following his book 'A Brief History of Time'.
His black hole theory, quantum mechanical reasoning that is claimed can never be put to the test, because there is no way you could ever get a black hole into a laboratory. Quantum Physics is way above my maths knowledge but the arguments are interesting especially if you try and visualize them.
