After the last two days of Northern Voice, it strikes me that one of the features of a blog is the ability to record your thoughts and archive them.
In short, I have a record of my brain from the past. In the course of the last hour of Nancy White’s (http://www.fullcirc.com/weblog/onfacblog.htm) presentation Snow White and the Seven Competencies of Online Interaction (http://2006.northernvoice.ca/speakers/snow-white) I have had several significant thoughts and I have barely been able to hold them in my head before the next one comes along.
In this environment it would be very useful to have a a record of my brain from 5 minutes ago.
Very much like my Tivo at home, the ability to rewind a line of thought and I think my blog is the closest I can get.
