Here’s an excerpt from Seth’s Blog:
Unlike tweets, which vanish, Tina’s posts are here for a long time and much easier to share and bookmark. Her trail becomes useful not just to her, but to everyone who is interested.
What would happen if you took ten minutes of coffeebreak downtime every day and produced an online artifact instead?
I suppose most (if not all) of us want to leave behind a mark. Something people can remember us by years from now. And maybe he is right in saying that producing an online artifact is a way to this… in fact, maybe that is the reason why I keep this blog.
However, I cannot help but be reminded of a previous entry I had about Legacy.
The lesson here for me is that you leave all the online artifacts that you want… but I believe that, ultimately, what matters is the mark that you leave behind with the people you care about.
