The value of Michael Wolff’s opinion: Vanity Fair’s Michael Wolff thinks blogs “lower the value of all information.” I assume he’s referring to the rexblog.
On why he doesn’t want to blog:
I look at that particular blog piece of software I react viscerally. I
said, “Oh, I don’t want this. I don’t want to be part of this.” There’s
that scene in “Doctor Zhivago” where the professionals and the
intelligentsia are reduced to having to walk with the hoi polloi, and
that’s what I feel when I’m forced into this blog stuff.
I want to take what I think of as a noble and principled stand in
saying that I’m not going to be part of this blog stuff. And I’m going
to insist upon this until I am washed away.”
It’s been my experience that information is nearly always without value. However, wisdom is priceless.
And wisdom is usually found when you walk with the hoi polloi.
