The term blog began from web log. The de facto definition of blog was characterised when some lonely person decided to post his or her daily journal on-line for the world to read. (Although, the original blog was not an on-line journal.) As with most web-based phenomenon (like ICQ and eBay), it was only a matter of time before a business would form based on that idea.
Blogging gave rise to the concept of personal publishing and the corresponding push-button publishing jargon.
However, in the personal publishing realm, there’s still tremendous potential in the application of push-button publishing. It goes beyond posting your life story or telling us what you had for dinner.
John Barger coined the term blog in December 1997.
Today, 18 February 2003, I would like to introduce the latest in personal publishing.
I call it Wolumn.
A wolumn is a web column in the same way a blog is a web log.
You see where I am going?
Yes. You heard it here first. Wolumn. Spread the word.
