Social media – Facebook and Twitter – managed to kill my blog within a couple of months. I am amazed to see how many other blogs died around mine. They are hunting the web as half dead bodies, filled with old-stuff stories, not being updated for a while, leaving a trace of a quiet recent past, but too old to feel present. All these blogs will mark the rise and fall of a whole (sub-) culture, that was crashed by the power of social media and the convenience of expressing thoughts in just a few words.
But i don’t declare the death of my blog. Won’t look into the past what’s been written – i don’t care and no one bothers – but i know there will be a future for deeper communication. Blogs will survive, blogs will be a light in the huge black hole of the social media and the proprietary web 3.0. Berlin Kollektiv will be there!
