Malcolm Gladwell … towards the end talking about why he podcasts … I particularly like his thought that with books there is an entire industry waiting to say why you shouldn’t read something … but with Podcasts … nobody says anything like that.

@JohnPhilpin I didn't know that Micro.blog creates a post like that. Is it about mentioning a micro.blog post?

@mrkrndvs 😊 ... i was just playing around - noting and thanking for sharing the Malcolm Gladwell post into your stream … in the bygone days of Twitter we had RTs - I am not aware of an easy equivalent - but what you did is close.

@JohnPhilpin It can sometimes be hard to see the possibility of blogging and the web. For me it is about continually joining the dots and making the connections. As Amy Burvall highlights, In order to connect dots, one must first have the dots That is the power of Webmentions. My little callout to say, “Hey, interesting idea(s)”. Sharing is where it starts.
