Sharing a part of me

Thinking about writing this blog regularly, I feel a little like Ginny Weasley from the Harry Potter series. She wrote into Tom Marvolo Riddle’s magical diary and shared a little too much of herself. Tom Riddle happened to be Lord Voldemort, the evil wizard who killed Harry’s parents.

Anybody who is writing a blog is essentially giving out a part of himself/herself. That makes it very interesting. Never in the history of mankind would (insignificant) individual lives have been so well recorded. If all these blogs survive for say a 1000 years, I wonder what the archeologist of that time wil do. The blogs will tell everything about how the world was in the 21st century.

So the biggest hole in history, that of having insufficient records, has been plugged. Everything right from the downright rubbish to the extremely useful is now recorded. There’s no escaping the blog.

Then again, someday down the line all data in the world could get corrupted due to radition or magnetic field created by a meteor hititng the earth or whatever else u might have seen on the Discovery Channel..And poof! everything’s gone. Back to square one.

Did anybody bother to take prints? 🙂
