The Blog as Your Daily News Source

There is an interesting idea here concerning the concept of blogging as publishing. There are different expectations -- ie linking back -- when sharing commment/ideas among bloggers than there are among traditional media outlets.

Though newspapers grew out of the desire to share information between those in a community, clearly, blogging goes a step further. The blogging community spans the globe. It is not confined by borders or bodies of water. It is editorial, but interactive as well.

If found it interesting that bloggers covering the recent Democratic convention in Boston were viewed as a curiosity -- they were part of the news.

How long will it take before bloggers are reporting on the news in as influential a manner as the mainstream media? Soon, I suspect.

Til then,
Rick
