Imagine, and I will pick my heros, Descartes, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Simone de Beauvoir, Emily Bronte and sisters, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, the list goes on, what would they be blogging today?
Here are my thoughts for some topics - I am sure there are better:
Descartes: Blogito ergo sum
J-P Sartre: Other people's posts are hell.
Emily Brontë: Heathcliff! You don't e-mail, you don't twitter, you don't post. It's been twenty years and still I haven't heard from you.
Greene: I must confess I wonder if it is sinful to share my thoughts with you.
Waugh: So vulgar!
