Podcast: A Conversation with “Blogfather” Dave Winer

Several weeks ago I had a phone conversation with Dave Winer, whose work led to the existence of my original eJournal blog at the San Jose Mercury News. We reminisced about those days of experimentation, and looked ahead at some big issues. One of the latter is preservation. How can we save what we’re creating online? It’s a nontrivial question.

    Keeping what we write today is especially important as some amazing stuff is almost certainly going unnoticed today that might be discovered in the future.
