Who's your grand daddy

And now for a history lesson.

Go and get a copy of Marcus Aurelius’s “Meditations” and you will find out that he was not only a Roman Emperor but quite possibly the first ever blogger. The technology and medium were quite different, parchment that is, still the style and method are true to the blogger mentality.

Come to think of it blogging is not all that new. The act of jotting down notes and ideas has a very long history. It persists ever since the days of cave paintings to the modern era. The action of posting these ideas without requiring a couple of hundred copy monks is what defines modern blogging. Oh and the current ignominious simplicity of ideas and language used.
