The Blogging Revolution @ Oy. No wonder no one respects web journalism. I could barely get past the first sentence. 1992? Funny, but the first visual browsers weren't released until 1993 and homepages didn't spring up like daisies till 94/95.

well, the orange inset box within that article has certainly sucked the last bit of life out of the term 'blog'.
At least he gave Raza some well-deserved props.

Don't argue with the man, Gabby! He's a genius!

It even says so on his homepage. That's how I know.

Hell, Al Gore hadn't even invented the internet until 1994. What's wrong with people?

It's nice to be around before you've been invented so by the time your cool and hip, you feel passé .

Just a note; visual browsers, sure, but doesn't anyone remember text browsers?

then again, isn't text visual?

I mean, yes, the article is a load of newbie hyped garbage that ignores the dumbing down effect technology has on people, but at least pick on the right things.

I think that first paragraph was stolen from zeldman. I could have swore Zeldman had said that or something really close to that before. I could just be going insane, though. Probably the second one.

Al Gore told Meg to call it "LinkinLogs" but did she ever listen? Nooo!

Ahem, Zach... If you know anybody with prior art on LinkinLog, I'd like to know...
