||What We're Doing When We Blog|
|Subject:||Multiple formats, multiple definitions|
While I agree that a lot of mainstream media articles miss the mark, I think that this piece, too, defines blogging too narrowly. (Though I think it makes a bunch of interesting points.) The term "blog" used to refer specifically to a place to post links-plus-info, a la boingboing, but these days I often see the term also used to refer to personal online journals, many of which rarely use links and don't invite discussion.
