Monologist Mike Daisey, who calls himself an "early adopter" of the Web, has been active in the Internet since 1998. He has accumulated 21,000 e-mail addresses from fans.
"Without it we would not be where we are now, with a national career and multiple major cities that expect and anticipate our returning regularly," Daisey said in an e-mail. "I use the main page (of my Web site) as a blog, but it's a blog that has mainly images, articles about info I'm engaged in, work that is being reviewed now -- it's a constant stream ... I do it in public in the spirit of openness and transparency, and readers enjoy the way that articles and pieces they see there find their way into and influence upcoming work."
