USATODAY.com - Freewheeling 'bloggers' are rewriting rules of journalism
You know, what impresses me about this story is not the idea that webloggers are affecting our political life, or that weblogging is creating competition for traditional media, or even that political candidates now feel they must have weblogs to run a campaign.
It's that on December 30, 2003, USA TODAY still describes weblogs as: "...a new form of publication on the internet."
Yeah, there are people who don't know what a blog or a weblog or a webjournal is. I'm sure there are, just like there are people who don't know what a muon or a quark is. This doesn't make them new, or even all that obscure. (Anyone ever see Roxanne ?)
You think the "powers that be" are still waiting for weblogs to go away and are just so amazed that they are taking over as a media/news source?
