Smart Talk: Dave Winer on blogging ‘importance’

Wise words from Winer:
“…Bloggers who never flame anyone and don’t have blogrolls (or don’t make a big deal about them) may take a long time to become “important” — but if they stand out because of the quality of their ideas, and the ideas they inspire, they can attain a kind of longevity that has value, like the giants whose shoulders Sir Isaac Newton stood on.”
