I confess! I did it!

Confessions galore spewed forth as three brave web-o-philes showcased their personal sites to a roundtable room of other online journalers. Maura Johnston of, Stephen Falk of and Pamela Ribon of spoke on the differences between real journals and what's presented online and a discussion ensued with audience members on how people feel closer to online chroniclers and use their website as a way to keep in touch with friends. The conversation was taking its normal route when an older gentleman, David Miller of the Foreign Service Review in Austin, TX, offered an historical perspective on how creative types from the 20s and through the years have exchanged scrapbooks and public journals -- just at a slower bit-rate.
