Did Porn Sites Have the Earliest Blogs?

· bodega

In the current blogging craze tipping point moment (a computer book author list I’m on right now is discussing MovableType under the thread “Is MT is or is MT ain’t the shiznit?”), I got to wondering if, as usual, porno pioneered yet another micromedium. I mean, the people who market the make-your-own-porn-site kits always include a what’s new type blog and often a diary as well, my sources tell me. =%7o
To support myself as a writer, though, I have to get ahead of something else, or at least a new twist. Not the semantic web… What? I still think the problems of personal information management are very interesting and largely unsolved for those who are not effortlessly smart-technical (people like shacker and john levine and alan i mean philip greenspun, off the top of my head).
For example, my email archive viewed as the database it is, filtering, sorting, searching, and relating content), and relevant to this context and this post, a hyperblog tool that would make it much easier for me to cross-reference any particle of my blog with any other particle or any other part of the web and vice versa. My reference to MT above should at least be related to my other posts about setting up a movabletype test bed using my mac’s apache server, right?
