Last week I read those scary technorati figures about macro growth of the blogosphere (a new blog and 10.4 posts per second) and then happened to follow a link to Just Letters where there was a fair bit of fridge activity dragging along with x others. The scramble for letters to spell out names or random word associations that last a few seconds .

How long before everyone has a blog? Or it becomes compulsory? Or when you apply for a drivers license you have to fill in a space: Your Blog Name _________ ? Or at the supermarket: "Do you have Fly-Bys, Sir? And a blog?"
It's just a matter of time.

Wonder how the Spikes in posting volume break down.
across the blogging software? - (is there a LJ 'Event Milestone?')
"Do you want Blogs with that?"
How long before 'No Blogging' signs start to appear in Public Spaces. Blogging and Non-Blogging Sections in Pubs. "Than You For Not Blogging' in restaurants?

"Than You For Not Blogging"? That would be in a Chinese restaurant.

"Smn ps stling my"? The K-O-R-E-A ns are attacking 'Just Letters' at the moment.

Weird, isn't it.
I was reminded of "Bad Etiquette when doing Jig-Saws.." when I was last there.

And yet I had a brief and heartfelt exchange with someone while the Koreans were busily building a heart, letting us use a few letters. Perhaps this is what conversation in the post-blog world will be like.
No more "why are you ignoring me?"
"Why are you stealing my letters?"

Everyone does, have a blog, already. We just don't know all their names and addresses, yet.
The reason that "k" is still there is because it was silent and they couldn't find it.
