Thinking allowed

The well-tempered web: How the Internet (among other things) is recasting classical music:
"Younger musicians, in particular, are using every available means to reach a potential public that is far larger than the one that already exists."
It's a good article worth reading to the end.

I found it, by the way, in a link from Ashok's excellent blog, which in turn I looked at in a link from comments in this very good post over at Westminster Wisdom on inheritance tax. In response to the piece on Westminster Wisdom, here Ashok is writing one of those 'thinking aloud' posts - the ones where the writer doesn't appear sure what their conclusions are on the matter in hand.

This kind of writing is annoying in a book or a magazine - why pay to read someone who doesn't offer you a proper bottom line? But I learned something reading it and I don't mind this sort of writing on blogs. Perhaps it is one of the most important things that bloggers have contributed to public debate?
