It may be altruistic of me to say that IMHO it has. Only a few years ago there were quite a few innovative demigods producing conceptual frameworks not handed down by steering committees. These conceptuals gave rise to blossoming careers and a different type of learing. At one time there were many innovator's.

I would like to stand on the idea of Ockham's Razor "entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily" commonly interpreted to mean that the simplest of a set of competing viable theories is preferable. Keeping up with what's here now (.Net, Blogging, WIKI's, WS*.*) is nigh to seemingly impossible at this juncture. Pandering of a persons knowledge by BLOG alone leaves little room for advance.

Surf, on! Hit the road Jack! Frell it all! Go out of your mind for a bit and refuse to eat the foo your being given. There are many of you out there like Scott here that set the bar to which we should all strive. I know your out there peeps you have ideas that make the things being fed to us today taste bland.

Personally - No I do not believe blogging has gone too far.

Blogging has allowed me to enter development circles that I may have not had access to before, share my ideas, and advocate things I think are important. Before blogging, it was difficult to get your ideas recognized, and have a place to talk about this stuff.

Since starting a blog I have impacted the direction of my company, and have created an avenue for people to talk about software development.
