Do you have a newspaper?
Back in the day all the smart people with something to say had their own newspapers. They had the motivation and ability to publish their thoughts for the community to read. I’m sure it wasn’t easy or cheap, but they did it. It was that important to them.
In the age of the Internet we all have a platform to publish on. It is fast and free. We can all carve out our little piece of the Internet to say whatever we want to say… and that is pretty awesome. I bet Benjamin Franklin would dig the Internet.
