Someone asked me how I came to recognize the U.S. when I was growing up. I was explaining to him that his idea of how most kids in the world start out liking America, because they love Disney and Hollywood movies, and it's the adults who would tell them negative... Continue »

The last thing I would imagine the world would need is a *new* blog app, but [Anil suggested just that][personalcomment] in response to my post on building a journal mesh: > I think the best thing that could happen right now to encourage long-form sharing, though, would be having tools...
