Just Because I Can?

Seth Godin as usual makes some interesting points in a blog entry today, including two very salient ones for me:

a) blogging doesn't have to be perfect, so blog and move on rather than waiting for the perfect way to express a transient thought;
b) you don't express any ideas at all by not writing, so writing a little and often may well be more useful than producing large well-crafted essays every six months.

The first is a message that has started to get through to me anyway as a result of my work at Python Magazine; the second is a variation on the theme that nobody knows what history will make of them, so there's little point trying for a particular effect.

Thanks for getting me started again Seth!
