I agree (and I nearly published my last blog entry about Perl 6
nearly as a Meditation), but the Meditation
section misses something important, compared to "real" blogs: an RSS (or atom) feed.
It might look like a small detail, but to me it makes a big difference; it neither appears in blog aggregators nor in my feed reader.
Update: Of course Perlmonks has a huge advantage over normal blogs, the discussions are often much better and in-depth. Having it as a superset of a "normal" blog would be really cool. If I had an RSS feed that contains all of my Meditation nodes, I'd write nearly everything perl related here (except when I want hilighting for Perl code).
