Weird obsession explained!

Thanks to Peter Kaminski for accounting for my recent porch fixation. His January 2003 post defines the blog as a virtual front porch: topporch.jpg

"Blogs are like front porches. As people amble by on the sidewalk, they find an interesting person or three on the front porch swing. They might follow a bit of the discussion, and be moved to say hello. Or they might amble on, and when they get home to their porch, talk about how they saw so-and-so talking over on Elm Street about such-and-such."
