While I'm a big fan of Terry Pratchett (based on the book that I've read thus far), Mort, for all its hype, was a tad underwhelming. There were occasional moments of utter brilliance. But they were largely overshadowed by bouts of dull mediocrity. I really did not dig the character of Cutwell and the plot itself was a little too haphazard.
While I was on my the toilet seat just now contemplating my latest toilet paper origami masterpiece, an odd thought crept into my brain out of nowhere... I wondered what percentage of blogs/journals etc. on sites like blogspot would belong to dead people in, say, 20 years time. I suspect that while the medium and feature-set will evolve, the basic concept and practice of having a blog will still stick around. How about in 50 years time? There'd be millions of dead people blogs still available on the ever-eternal (mmm tautology) innernet.
