NYT Says Take Blogs Seriously
In a 367-word editorial The New York Times editors told the world today that it takes the blogosphere seriously. The underlying message is we all should follow their lead. The editors wrote…
It’s natural enough to think of the growth of the blogosphere as a merely technical phenomenon. But it’s also a profoundly human phenomenon, a way of expanding and, in some sense, reifying the ephemeral daily conversation that humans engage in. Every day the blogosphere captures a little more of the strange immediacy of the life that is passing before us. Think of it as the global thought bubble of a single voluble species.
