CAPS Blogs



August 24, 2007 – Comments (5)

There's so much great stuff going up on the CAPS blogs that it's tough to keep up with. Nevertheless, for those that haven't seen it yet, I try to do just that on a weekly basis and highlight a handful of the great blog posts on CAPS. Here's this weeks.

Read something (or posted something yourself) great that I missed? Let me know!

Ha! I know the feeling.

The funny thing about a blog is that it's supposed to be more quick and informal. When it comes to blogs on potentially controversial subjects such as finance and politics, though, you end up with people who are looking for things like their/there/they're to discredit the writer.

Of course discrediting somebody on the basis of that alone is probably a good sign that the discredit-or is unable to find a good retort to the points that the writer presents...

I agree totally with ya, Kopp & Florida. A major purpose and function of blogs is to quicly respond with analysis and comments to events as they occur. That is what is so great, soon after a significant development instant analysis starts to fill the blogosphere. If authors had to spend time laboring over editing and proofreading then the delay will result in a less valuable contribution.

In my opinion, blogs are not supposed to be formal reports and articles that one observes on alternative platforms. For instance research reports from equity analysts, many always jeer at how they contain yesterday's news. As a result, some analysts now use blogs to pump out short, quick thoughts on events as they occur, and then later consolidate and expand thoughts when they publish formal reports that are less time sensitive.

A benificial objective to the blogging outlet, is to have broad range of opinion from a collection of individuals, thus if blog posts and comments are slowed down by efforts to be formal and perfectly written, there will inevitable be less content available since contibutors will waste time on fewer subjects instead of quickly giving thoughts about a whole multitude of items.

Nonetheless, if those people are willing to waste their time over symantics of grammar, then they obviously don't have any creative or insightful views to put forth.

Just as Kopp said, those people was disagree and what to complain but can't find any meaningful counter points.

Take it light,

Turley M
