I do this little blog, and occasional related activities, in part because I think that every now and then I flap my little butterfly wings and manage to influence the world a tiny bit. And I think I have! A few times. Just a tiny bit. Which is pretty good, really. So I always feel a bit guilty when I'm inclined to roll my eyes at the latest incarnation of "online activism." It isn't because I think no good can come of it, but the truth is that furiously typing away on a discussion board or the twitters probably isn't going to change the world. Neither is this sucky blog! I don't roll my eyes at the attempts or the desire. I roll my eyes when people are a bit too convinced that what they're doing is going to make a difference.
