SRS Blog

The purpose of this manufacturing SRS Blog is to keep the customer informed and report on manufacturing policy and politics.

We are here to discuss the latest technologies and events that occur daily within the industrial world.

Information found on this SRS blog will help you connect and stay updated on key policy issues affecting the industry.

Technical History of the “BLOG”

A blog (a truncation of the expression “weblog“) is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts).

Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order.  This is so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.

Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual.  It is occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic.  In the 2010s, “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors.   Many of which were sometimes professionally edited.

MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups, and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic.

Twitter Compared to the SRS Blog

The rise of Twitter and other “microblogging” systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media.

The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users who did not have much experience with HTML or computer programming.

Technologies

Previously, a knowledge of such technologies as HTML and File Transfer Protocol had been required to publish content on the Web, and early Web users therefore tended to be hackers and computer enthusiasts.

In the 2010s, the majority are interactive Web 2.0 websites, allowing visitors to leave online comments, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. 

Furthermore, in that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service.  Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs, but also often build social relations.

These relations are with their readers and other bloggers.  However, there are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments.

Branding

Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from politics to sports.  Others function as more personal online diaries, and others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company.

A typical SRS blog combines text, digital images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic.  The point of the blog is to educate the readers on many areas of industrial products.

In addition, the ability of readers to leave publicly viewable comments, and interact with other commenters, is an important contribution.  This is because without this ability it won’t have popularity of many blogs.

However, blog owners, writers or authors often review the online comments to remove hate speech or other offensive content that may occur.  This rarely happens on industrial website blogs but they can occur.

Also, most blogs are written in text, although some focus on art, photographs, videos, music, and audio.

In education, blogs can be used as instructional resources.  These type of blogs are referred to as edublogs.  Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts but rarely used in this industry.
