Over at the Sony Boycott Blog, I just posted a longish (albeit first draft) essay called “Using Blogs and the Media for Change: The Sony BMG Case Study.” It tries to analyze the timeline of media coverage around the Sony story together with events in the case to draw some general conclusions on how blogs can change the world. Comments welcome.
It felt nice to have a three day blog hiatus over the weekend, just as it feels nice to get back on the horse this morning. I guess sometimes just the change of routine is important.
I got a fair amount done on the house over the holiday. I primed the plaster in the newly finished upstairs bathroom (in the process doing a very nice job of painting my hair—must remember to wear a cap next time), replaced light fixtures in our upstairs and downstairs halls, and assembled much of the organizational furniture that Lisa and I purchased during an Ikea run on Wednesday night.
One of these days I’ll have pictures; unfortunately, I can’t for the life of me find the cable that connects my camera to my computer. (Yes, I see the irony; I said we assembled the organizers, not that we actually got organized. Big difference.)
