Having been on hiatus from DC for several months (again), when I returned and reviewed the general software and living room sections, it's as if the conversation was narrowing. What I've always loved about DC is its expansiveness, and comments from a wide variety of perspectives. I miss the bloggers, and perhaps we could figure a way to generate them again?
Yes, people have obligations that distract from consistently blogging — ask any blogger — but it would spark broader participation in the forum, I believe. Perhaps have an 'Open' blog section or something. Just an idea.
