story of the blog

It’s a lot of fun hangin’ on the blog. You can get away from things and pretend you matter.

FaceBook will pass but bloggers carry the spirit of the rugged individual to the Internet. They also see something in themselves others don’t see (off line).

We must be thankful to the inventor of the blog, Weber Blogerstein. He first painted missives on some of the early television sets. He liked the way they lit up.

He immigrated from Austria and settled in Brooklyn, New York. After going broke from buying and destroying televisions, he went into the mirror business.

That too failed because he either spent all day looking in the mirror, or writing on them. He was fond of himself and wanted desperately to share is inner soul with complete strangers. They would see how beautiful he was inside. That would help if they ever got as look at him.

One day a boy named Al Gore walked into his shop. He too was mesmerised by his image reflected all around the large room.

He saw the writing on some of the illuminated mirrors and asked “What’s this”?

“It is the net that captures my inner dreams…and transmits them into a million minds.”

And that was 1962 when a million was an awesome market share.

Little Al never forgot the strange man and his glowing messages. “Inner Net, Inner Net“, he repeated all the way home.

The rest is history.
