“Well,” he said, “a disadvantage of using it is that since each blog post is simply a text file on your server, the last time the file was modified becomes the time stamp on the blog post. So I can’t edit posts after posting them: if I did, the system would decide the post was fresh and put it at the top of the page with today’s date on it.”
“Oh, that would never work for me,” I replied, “I edit my posts continuously. All my posts would have today’s date if my software kept track of my edits like that.”
The subject changed with no further comment than a couple of raised eyebrows from the other bloggers present, but I relished my words as though speaking sacrilege, imagining what such a blog would be like: continuously edited just as memories are.
