So for all those who keep checking the Silva Family blog for updates and leave disappointed because there isn't anything new here is a post explaining why.
I preface my response with the following. If you know me, I am a big fan of technology. I love email and the internet. I was a computer science major before I moved to economics. If you didn't know that now you know.
Having that said I will proceed with my answer. I don't blog because I don't find it to be a very helpful technology. The kinds of things I would put on a blog I would prefer to discuss with people face to face. I find that technology is a poor substitution for person to person interaction. Thus I would prefer to speak with most of the people who read this blog about what is going on with my life, etc.
I do find a blog helpful to help me remember things, or to communicate information with people you don't need or want to speak with. For example I have my Genealogy Research Log. It has 691 hits since the beginning of this year. This is a good use of the technology in my opinion. I post to this blog at least weekly. So that is why I don't blog.
But realizing that the time to meet and discuss is hard to come by, we (Danielle and I) will start making posts to the blog. So stay tunned...
