RW Emerson, blogger?

Christopher Lydon on proto-blogger Emerson:

When we talk about this Internet and this blogging software, this techno-magic that encourages each of us to be expressive voices in an open, universal network of across-the-board conversation, we are speaking of an essentially Emersonian device for an essentially Emersonian exercise.

Yes but, Emerson only imagined photography, and the image works of our world are a complete revolution from the daily scripting of thoughts and observations. Truly, he was not understood then by the larger American public, rarely has he been understood since, few can encapsule a nuke of thought, Harvard doesn't even teach him, so we can imagine that protoblogger left the world to imitate rather than demonstrate their access to the intuitive God.
