Young Blogging Punk

"Pretty cool. I am way too old to understand all of it."

That comment was recently made about this blog by a reader. Unfortunately, I think he is now an ex-reader. It opened my eyes, though. I have to wonder what he meant. Does he think this blog is really progressive and cutting edge, the newest of the new thinking? Or does he think it is unsophisticated and incompletely developed, unsuitable for matured minds?

Yet another example that gaining and maintaining an audience of any sort is all about appealing, but not pandering, to a particular view of the world.
