There’s been a wash of articles this month that appear to solidify weblogs as a solid online content platform for politics, business and public information. This continued level of acceptance will hopefully enable more conservative institutions (like courts) to embrace the platform more widely. Recent articles include:
- ‘Blogs’ Shake the Political Discourse, by Joanna Weiss; Boston Globe (July 23, 2003).
- Legal And Appellate Weblogs: What They Are, Why You Should Read Them, And Why You Should Consider Starting Your Own, by Gary O’Connor and Stephanie Tai; Journal of Appellate Practice and Procedure (posted July 22, 2003).
- A Blog for Everyone, by Mark Ward; BBC News (July 22, 2003).
- What Are Blogs and Why Is Everyone So Excited About Them? by Jerry Lawson, Brenda Howard, Dennis Kennedy, Ernest Svenson and Tom Mighell; LLRX.com Internet Roundtable Discussion #36 (Posted July 21, 2003).
- Welcome to the ‘new’ Web, same as the ‘old’ Web, by Christine Boese; CNN Headline News (July 15, 2003).
- Moblogs Seen as a Crystal Ball for a New Era in Online Journalism, by Howard Rheingold for Online Journalism Review (July 9, 2003).
- Blogs in the Workplace, New York Times (July 6, 2003).
One advantage of letting things pile up in your aggregator is that more efficient folks like Rory come along and organize stuff for you. I knew that eventually procrastination would become an important knowledge economy skill!
