Keyboard or Pen

As they say "The pen is mightier than the sword". But, I would say Keyboard has become mightier. Blogging has given new dimension to the above quote by Edward_Bulwer-Lytton. Blogging has given individuals the freedom to exercise their right to ‘freedom of expression’.

Apart from giving a global reach to the web community it allows bloggers to publicise their area of interest without bothering much about who’s who of the readers in different parts of the world.

Given the free sites like Blogspot, Bloglines, etc,. which allow you to create blogs, and other sites providing free services like hit counter, xml feeds, blog ratings form easy ingredients for bloggers to use.

Shall this new trend of sharing information, rephrase the quote as “Keyboard is mightier than fighter jets” ? Or advancing further should we say “Blogging is mightier than nuclear weapons” ?
