Is Blogging the new Tamagotchi?

Talking to the Mark McGuinness at Interesting2007 I was explaining my emerging relationship with this blog. How if I neglect her it feels like she's content starved or being taken for granted. I also feel it makes sense to introduce this blog when meeting up with any of the distributed village posse in case it facilitates conversation by navigating quickly through the small talk or helps to locate me at a later time. Notice a pattern here? Guilt through neglect, burden of provision and requisite introductions in social situations? Lets face it, this blog could easily be 'the wife' to use a certain vernacular couldn't it? Anyway it was Mark who nailed it. "Blogging is the new Tamagotchi". We were both pleased with ourselves for having a conversation that concluded on this line.

  1. To be fair Charles, I think we both nailed it at the same time. Chuffed to see that I am now 'the' Mark McGuinness!

  3. Please don't neglect her. If it weren't for your previous post (Interesting People), then I wouldn't have realised that an ex Publicis-colleague, Emily, had launched a blog.

  5. Surely, though, blogging is the new gay cowboys?

  7. Hey thanks Doug. I must confess there was a small impulse to strut like Tony Manero in Saturday night fever. But then it doesn't take much for me to git that mood going :)
