Blogging: A free service is worth what you pay for it

An analysis by Perseus
Development Corporation says that blogs are abandoned at a very high
rate, not surprising for free services. Like many free, cool internet
things, folks with free time, little cash and curiosity (teenagers) are
the primary users — the scouts of what will be cool later, risking the
equivalent later embarassments of polyester leisure suits. I wouldn’t
be surprised if there are similar statistics for free mail servers,
too. Unsurprisingly, Andrew Orlowski of the Register paints this in the
worst light possible.
It’s an amusing read, if you don’t mind reading slanted, biased and
bitter opinion mixed with the news. He writes well, at least.
