Retro blogger takes potshot at Apple

Forget . Think papercasting.

It's the latest in blogging, at least according to this guy.

He writes his thoughts on a pad of paper and then posts images of the pad on his Web site. The seemingly low-tech idea employs some high-tech automation to scan, process and publish the entries. Anything underlined is actually a hyperlink.

But the papercaster could headed down the same paths as other bloggers who have run into trouble. One entry is a sketch of an Apple Computer "iPad" (and companion iPad Staple) that could be the hardware of choice for papercasting.

It seems like he's kidding, but he acknowledges he runs the risk of being subpoenaed if he hits too close to home.
