Internet, blogging and time ::

I recently (Maundy Thursday till the Tuesday after Easter) spent nearly six days with no Internet! I mentioned this fact as an excuse for delay in replying to some of the huge number of emails waiting for me on Tuesday evening, and have enjoyed the expressions of incredulous sympathy ;)

Actually I find that two or three days is a lovely rest, but that by the fourth or fifth day I am feeling virtual communication deprived - my wife has similar feelings (though less intense withdrawal symptoms if she gets no (printed, radio or TV) "News", so the phenomenon can hardly be called new.

But several delays in reading blogs (over the Summer we took a holiday, as the semester began things were hectic, the three weeks of leading worship and preaching for self-denial filled weeks more than usual...) have meant that I feel semi-detached. I still scan the blogs I usually look at, sometimes I still read a post carefully, occasionally I comment, but I have hardly posted, and when I have it has not often been in response to other bloggers.

I wonder if others in similar positions is the cause of the phenomena that have widely been discussed following Jim's "Death of Blog Theology"... (Big apology to all, in my hurry I failed to note the URLs for your fine insightful, and sometimes amusing, responses to Jim, but there was much I enjoyed and much I agreed with.)

Anyway, during the six days I managed to get quite a bit of catching up done, so expect soon an announcement of the first draft of the manual for Hypertext Bible Commentary authors, and I am happy that the regular PodBible podcasts are back on track (for your daily Bible 'cast)... the marking has (at least) been begun :) and there's another whole week (and one bonus day) before classes start!
