ORIENS: Should Catholics blog?

Let me make a quick comment on this article. The author is highly critical of blogs and the internet in general; his criticisms are valid and worth heeding. However, in the final analysis I cannot agree with him because blogs and the internet are useful communications tools. It is true that the medium does influence the message, but ultimately blogs and the internet are tools. They are not good or bad in themselves, their goodness or badness are the result of what they are used for; the content determines quality.
