Here is one of the most interesting essays I have read this year.

This piece by Martin Larsen is a reaction to an earlier essay by activist Geert Lovink, who identified Blogging as a nihilist impulse.

As much as I generally admire Lovink’s work, I had felt very uneasy with the culturally pessimist and politically disarming view that he expressed in that essay. Martin’s text is a very clearly argued antidote.
