The funny thing about technology (in this case blogging, web 2.0 etc.), is that the early adopters are always looking to bail and find something new when the everyone else starts to catch on. In reality, sometimes a technology or a process works so well that it doesn't need to go much further.

That's why we don't have jet-packs and rocket ships and flying cars. Modern automobiles, airplanes and ships serve transportation needs just fine. Sure, we can make them cleaner and more efficient with better design, but in the end, they will still be cars and boats and planes.

Blogging is like the automobile. You can only tweak it. It's here to stay and no amount of Facebooks or Twitters will change that.
