Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

On the 10th Anniversary of the Blogosphere

I just wanted to give some props to David Eaves and Taylor Owen (both affiliated with Progressive Bloggers and/or Liblogs) for their excellent article in the Toronto Star commemorating the 10th anniversary of blogging. The best quote of the whole article is here:

…blogging continues to be misunderstood by both technophiles and technophobes. For the past decade the former have maintained that blogs will replace traditional journalism, ushering in an era of citizen-run media. Conversely, the latter have argued that a wave of amateurs threatens the quality and integrity of journalism and possibly even democracy.

Both are wrong.

Why do Taylor and David think both are wrong? Go read the entire article to find out.
