@cdevroe Coincidentally, I was just reading Charles Arthur, writing about reaching the thousandth post on The Overspill:

there are now twice as many readers on email as there are on the web.

@artkavanagh interesting. I’m at over 4800 posts after 15 years. Perhaps I just have more junk. Maybe I should slow down. :-)

I wonder what number Dave Winer is at?

@khurtwilliams i suspect counting the total posts by @dave is akin to counting how many stones there are in this circle

@cdevroe And to add to what you concluded with, one risks falling out of the digital historical record/commons, too. If I write a book, it’s going to be collected in at least a few libraries somewhere; if instead I tell you and some other folks the same stuff via letters, they’re much more likely to be ephemera and lost (unless the recipient is a packrat or today sees that the letter might potentially have future value). Email (and thus newsletters) are the digital letters, whereas blogs/websites are the digital books….
