      I suppose that it seems by no means obvious to me why internet
      communications should be intrinsically different from those made
      possible by older forms of technology, such as letters, pamphlets,
      telephone messages. Every particular medium bears its own
      characteristic limitations and potentials, but the essential fact
      remains: the quality of what is presented, by a single human author,
      or by several, in collaborative venture, will either encounter, or
      fail to encounter, a compatible quality of response in
      readers/listeners. It is not a matter of competition, in my view,
      more a question of thirst. Most blogs that are out there would not
      satisfy my own thirst for new knowledge or a genuine mutual and
      respectful human interchange, at least I am assuming not, but the
      great advantage of the internet lies with the opportunity to select
      as narrowly as possible from a vast range of creative ventures,
      whether made by individuals or groups. Maybe I state the obvious,
      or miss your point, I don't know, am struggling to stay awake, so
      shall bring this latest etheric offering to its close.
