He is an American Blogger. He is best known as editor of Robot Wisdom, an influential early weblog. Jorn coined the term weblog to describe the process of “logging the web” as he surfed. He has also written extensively on James Joyce and artificial intelligence, among other subjects; his writing is almost entirely self-published. He has been an active Usenet participant since 1989, with “nearly ten thousand postings”to his credit.
He wrote early FAQs on ASCII art, Kate Bush, Thomas Pynchon, and James Joyce.
In 1994 he formulated the “Inverse Law of Usenet Bandwidth”:
“The more interesting your life becomes, the less you post… and vice versa.”
As an “unstoppable Usenet poster who could carry on simultaneous debates about Ibsen, Chomsky, artificial intelligence, and Kate Bush,” he became an “online legend” who would also get cited in the national press as an expert on usenet.
Started his Robot Wisdom site in February 1995, publishing essays and resources on James Joyce, AI, history, Internet culture, hypertext design, and technology trends.
Announcements of plans for a future “hardcopy edition” of Robot Wisdom for purchase began appearing at the foot of some of the site’s pages. On December 17, 1997, inspired by Dave Winer’s Scripting News and running on Winer’s Frontier publishing software, Barger began posting daily entries to his Robot Wisdom Weblog in the hope of finding “an audience who might see the connections between many interests.
In the 1990s, Internet forum software, created running conversations with “threads”. Threads are topical connections between messages on a virtual “corkboard”.
The modern blog evolved from the online diary, where people would keep a running account of the events in their personal lives.
Most such writers called themselves diarists, journalists, or journalers. Blogging has become such a mania.
