Regrets, I've had a few, but then again too few to mention...

"Web logs provide an important and valuable means of exchanging ideas. Certainly there are blogs I wish I'd never written. (Or at least not published.) But blogging has given me a greater set of friends, a broader set of ideas and a way to organize and express my thoughts. I recommend the process with all of its good and bad aspects." --Jim Stewart (author of Jim's Pond)

Amen, Jim.

B-blogs, a tool for business

"Unlike corporate websites, b-blogs are cheap to launch and easy to maintain, thanks to powerful, easy-to-use tools. Unlike spam, or junk e-mail, b-blogs aren't intrusive; users must click to them. Done well, b-blogs provide a fast, informal way to share information -- project updates, research or test results, product-release news, industry headlines -- inside and outside your company." | Technofile: Blogging for Business
