Clive Thompson is a member of the giant forehead club


As an occasionally fast-talking, bespectacled megalencephalic myself, I found this video of Clive Thompson, the thinking man’s Malcom Gladwell, verbally rat-a-tat-tatting about why he blogs quite interesting.

He pretty much hits all the high points – the main one being that blogging is a kind of exercise of your thinking and writing muscles. Journalists who don’t blog are like athletes who don’t train.
