Weve talked about this ad naseum here at AVC, butthe blogging revolution is more than a free publishingplatform and a new model for media. It is self expression atits core. It is people being who they are, talking the waythey talk, and doing it in public. I have an agenda. I do not hide it. I wear it on mysleeve. I believe in certain things. I want the world to be acertain way. I make investments. I promote them. I wantthem to be successful. And hopefully everyone knows all ofthose things when they show up here.
