Not long ago, TheNextWeb reported on a new idea from Digg founder Kevin Rose. This idea; Tiny is an idea for a new blogging platform. While Tiny doesn’t seem to be real yet, the YouTube video included gave us a glimpse of what it might look like.
The essence of this is a simple image or video in the background of you as you write. The text is fixed, as are other elements. The idea certainly has merits, but I think this movement towards creating the “Facebook of blogging” is failing to change the parts of blogging that need disruption. Blogging is not in a MySpace phase; Rather, I feel it is in need of a way of expressing ideas that can grow parallel to other real-time counterparts while being compartmentalized in a clear idea or topic.
