Re: Will on Blogs

Our pals at No Left Turns have picked up the meme too, starting with the WSJ instead of Will. What more is there to add? Most blogs, like most components of everything, are unimportant. Is there anything that makes worthwhile information less worthwhile because it comes out in blog format? What is "blogging" anyway? Is there a word limit to blog posts? A topical restriction? It's pretty plain that bad content can don the garb of any kind of media. The redeeming quality of even the worst blogs is -- at least for now -- you have to seek them out, and they don't come a-knockin' with advertisements as the battering ram. More than the major dailies can say, isn't it?
