What Would Jesus Post?

It’s been said of a lot of situations, but What Would Jesus Do about the internet if his ministry began today? Would he register ‘nazarenechippy.com’ and set up a weblog, or would he opt instead for personal, face to face contact?
I haven’t figured out an answer in my own mind, yet.
Jesus used the technology of his day; like church buildings, boats and public meetings to speak to people where they were. In many cases, they came to him.
On the other hand, Jesus wasn’t a prolific journalist – the only record of him writing anything down was when drawing in the sand before a crowd of people ready to punish a Samaritan woman. He left it to others to document his teaching.
The internet is a broad, popular medium, able to reach millions of people. Is it a power Jesus would use or refuse?
