Talking Outside the System

A few days ago I wrote about blogging as an important form of action, in response to an excellent post by Perla Ni. Today I see that Phil Cubeta of Gift Hub commented on Perla's original:

"Yes, Blogging reminds me of the marches, sit-in, be-in, rock concerts, consciounsess raising groups, and bull sessions that were so much a part of the ’60s. Sometimes we need to talk “outside the system” and socialize with one another before there is enough trust, solidarity, civic friendship, common ideas, emergent common sense, and cultural momentum to make change on a larger scale possible. You build a movmement one mind, one conversation, at a time."

A beautiful observation that take us back to the notion that blogging as form of relationship-building and conversation is an important strategy to use for anyone who wants to "build a movement."
