Digitally Mediated Information Services

These are my opinions alone and not necessarily those of my employer... in fact the lawyers would rather I said nothing.

Beginning blog comments

Denise Green provides an extended quote of from a Gorman, Michael publication Title: Revenge of the Blog People!

This is a very old story. It is the content! The fact that the content is in a blog does not make the content important. The content must make the content important (yuk! that sounds post-modernist). I find Mr. Gorman's comments about editors over general. Usually editorial filtering is very good as long as you are not the one being filtered but sometimes a lack of editorial control is very very good. Blogs are not publishing. They are public speaking.

I agree with Mr Gorman that google is not the "God Brain" and neither are blog postings.
