The Birth of Blogging

The Whole Earth Catalog prototyped the Web before the Internet was even invented. And in 1981, Anne Herbert added blogging:

“Thinking the world should entertain you leads to boredom and sloth. Thinking you should entertain the world leads to bright clothes, odd graffiti, and amazing grace in running for the bus.” 

From the Rising Sun Neighborhood Newsletter, in the lower right hand corner of all the odd-numbered pages. (The Next Whole Earth Catalog, Second Edition, page 193.)
