Too much blogging, not enough time

Up until Eddie Mair was let loose in the Blogosphere on the PM Blog I hadn't ventured near a blog.
Over the last month I have become an inveterate blogger, but only on that one blog, occasionally at the cost of work I should be doing. It is alarmingly addictive. There is a community on there, with a variety of friendships blossoming; there are often complete sideline conversations between two or three bloggers that have clearly identified each other as "kindred spirits".
For the most part all comments seem quite friendly, even if they are against each other, and all this happens with nobody actually meeting.
Is this, I wonder, the true power of the Internet, that it provides a social interaction space (good grief, that sounds like a buzz phrase) that could previously never have existed. This seems a world away from the original concept of Tim Berners-Lee who, as I understand it, devised a system for academics to share research papers and similar.

Its hard work this blogging

I fear that people have noticed that I am not blogging on a nearly regular enough basis. I'm getting far to sidetracked by commenting on other blogs.

Am I the only person that has done this?

Is Peace Possible

I want STROP to be a peaceful world. Okay at near zero Kelvin, not much will be happening; assuming that we can solve the whole "making the planet habitable" stuff, how do I prevent violence.

I don't want a "hippy" world, but a planet that takes all the good tenets from the various world religions without all the associated condemnation of everyone else.

Or should I just go join a commune...

Thought I'd add a piccy of Pluto.

New Blog

Okay, I've decided to start a blog.
This has come about having posted comments on the PM blog.
I got a little excited and decided that, to make Pluto important again, that I would declare independence with me as leader. Several people responded in similar vain, so I thought I would see where it could lead.
The question I first posed was "How do I create fire in a low oxygen atmosphere?" Any answers gratefully received
