Dave Winer's blog is old enough to get a learner's permit in North Carolina.
So much has happened in the realms of media, politics, and technology since he launched Scripting News.
A lot of it he saw clearly from the start, and he started at the beginning.
In a world where social media and corporate blogging have become the norm, an independent voice making itself heard in its own space may be more important than ever.
Anyone who blogs has someone who got them into blogging. For me, that was Dave. I'm still learning from him. Thanks, Dave.
