Blogging success can bring about trepidation. Case in point. My Sarah Palin post was linked on StumbleUpon.com. As a result, I have had over 20,000 readers in 3 days.
Many readers would be surprised to learn that my site doesn’t usually average 6,000 readers a day. It’s true. This influx of readership has left me wanting to write another blockbuster post. I’ve been waiting for inspiration for the perfect follow up post and….. nothing.
Forced writing is usually the worst. So, instead of delving right back into election commentary I’ll just point out other great blog posts that deserve your attention.
The Eternal Value of Privacy– A great essay from Wired.com. Sample quote
Too many wrongly characterize the debate as “security versus privacy.” The real choice is liberty versus control. Tyranny, whether it arises under threat of foreign physical attack or under constant domestic authoritative scrutiny, is still tyranny. Liberty requires security without intrusion, security plus privacy. Widespread police surveillance is the very definition of a police state. And that’s why we should champion privacy even when we have nothing to hide.
