I was talking to a friend last weekend who ran the Dublin city marathon recently. He told me that if he'd stopped running at about the 20 mile marker he'd never have been able to get going again. I guess that's what long distance runners refer to as 'the wall'. Now I could hardly run 20 yards at the moment but his words resonated with me on a different level - I've got a mild dose of blogger's block and I'm struggling to get the revs going again.
I'm happily yakking away over on Jaiku because microblogging is beautifully low maintenance. But macroblogging is a whole different ballgame. Ironically, at a time when there's never been a greater flow of news from the ReadWriteMashCrunchGigasphere I've never felt less inspired. My interest still lies mainly in the old-fangled stuff like RSS, OPML and microformats. Why is all the bruhaha surrounding Facebook, OpenSocial and Android leaving me cold? Why isn't it stirring my passions? Have I reached the Web X.0 Wall?
