Since Bill Caraher has been blogging about blogging [check out his article "Blogging Archaeology and the Archaeology of Blogging" on the Archaeology website], an article by Hurley Goodall in the Chronicle’s Wired Campus Newsletter I receive by email caught my attention – "Blogs May Be Rendered Obsolete by New Technology." The article talks about recent developments like Shyftr, which allows its users to read all their sites in one place and discuss these posts with other members at this site, not on the original blog. Some people are concerned that this will negatively impact the blogs since comments and discussions posted to the blog engender further discussion and if this discussion moves off-site it both eliminates the author from the discussion and removes it from his or her control.
