The best possible world involves engaging all human beings, allowing everyone to live a productive life and contribute to our civilizations future. That means getting everyone thinking and communicating.
There are a couple of annoying limitations to the blog as a medium. First, it tends to be one-way. Sure, you can post comments and I encourage you to do so, but a lot of people don’t follow the comments.
Second, it doesn’t really support organization the messages by topics, it’s just one linear thread with the most recent post at the top.
Forum software addresses these issues. Much more fully interactive, you can post topics the same as myself and we can organize the topics in a way that keeps related material together. There are also good facilities for pointing to additional resources, including still images or videos, etc.
