O’Reilly book on blogging

The book isn’t aimed at people who already blog, although many such readers will find useful information such as customizing their blogging software. Picture your coworkers who haven’t discovered blogging yet–they know how to work their computer, they’ve seen a couple of blogs and figure they want to run one themselves. You should be able to give them this book and it’ll educate them about choices of software and hosting, walk them through installing and using their chosen software.

Is this wise?


I always thought it was strange that it didn’t matter where you went in the US you where constantly bombarded with the stars and stripes. Every little town had a flag, every other house had a flag, every other building had a flag, every other person was wearing some sort of star spangled banner clothing.
Over the last few days I realised it was just because we seemed scared to show our own flag. The Union Flag was always associated with neo-nazis and the National Front.
Seeing The Mall decked out in Union Flags and the front of Buckingham Palace bathed in projections of St Georges cross, Union Flags and other such emblems made me realise patriotism isn;t strange at all. In fact maybe we are strange for not showing a pride in our country.

I wonder how many St George Flags will still be flying if the team get kicked out of the world cup? It seems a shame that it takes the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and the World Cup before we show any semblance of national pride.
