Why would anyone want an on-line log?

I always wondered where the term "blog" came from?

It's (B)ackwards log because the entries are in reverse order.


No, that's incorrect. It's from the term 'weblog', as in web-log. That
they're often seen as cronological had nothing to do with the terminology.

Explain to me the difference between a "Blog" and a Website.

Nothing and everything. A website may be a collection of web pages about
anything. Database, catalog, directory, index, or whatever. A weblog is
usually a list of items tracked by a person over the course of time, posted
onto a web server and thus seen as a website. A blog exists only as (part
of) a website, but a website may have many pages and none of them a weblog.

That doesnt make any sense at all. I had a website (which is now off
but will be coming back) that had 12 different pages where I discussed
what I had learned about several subjects and gave instructions on how
to do or accomplish several different things that I was interested
in. Was this a "Blog" or a website. It was a web site where I
discussed my 71 years of experience. It wasnt a "Blog" or a "Blob",
or a ""West (Newspeak for Web Site)

I have been on the internet since the days when it was black and
white, text only. All I see here is what I call "Newspeak language
inflation." People make up new terms to replace old ones just to be
doing something because they lack a life outside of making up words.
Like "issues" to replace "problems." Its just a euphemism to make
problems seem like something else. What the hell, we are not talking
about magazines here, we are talking about PROBLEMS. Problems can be
solved, but issues can only be read and thrown away.

To you, perhaps.

Gee, then you're a newbie. Most early screens weren't black and white
(plasma, amber, green, etc)

Sort of like pointless rants on usenet?
