During 2004, I ran a couple websites that attempted to organize what I considered to be important information online. Continue reading to share some current thoughts on this.

How long does it take for you to write a blog entry?

Over on Ryze, Linda Bohrnerud asks how long it takes people to write articles. She writes for a business blog and talks working on two articles for over a week. John Williams responds that it is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string". My first reaction was to think of Abraham Lincoln’s famous line. When asked how long a man’s legs should be, Lincoln responded, “long enough to reach the ground”. Probably the same applies to how long it should take to write an article. Long enough to make your point.

Open Government

(Also published at Greater Democracy)

During the 2004 Democratic Presidential Primaries, many of the candidates had blogs and a popular question was if they would continue their blogs if they were elected president. The other day, I stumbled across the legislative blog of State Rep. Peter Sullivan. It is great to see a blog like this and I hope more elected officials chose to make their view public in this manner and thereby encourage greater public participation in the governance process.

I’ve caught up on my emails and have gotten a chance to visit a few interesting websites. So, here are a few worth checking out:

Kim’s brother has a massive fascination with sharks, so this movie seems like a must see.

Finally, with all the discussions about ethics of bloggers and the DNC race, this blog entry puts it all into an interesting perspective.
