TIME for Blogs

June 14th, 2004

If you are at all interested in the blogging news and culture, you’ll want to read this story in TIME Magazine about the history and influence of the newest media.

Bloggers are unconstrained by such journalistic conventions as good taste, accountability and objectivity — and that can be a good thing. Accusations of media bias are thick on the ground these days, and Americans are tired of it. Blogs don’t pretend to be neutral: they’re gleefully, unabashedly biased, and that makes them a lot more fun.

But what’s this about not giving Wil Wheaton a nod?

    Welcome to Camelot…

    I thought the article was mostly written for people who never heard the term before. I am leaning towards a definition of the ‘new penny-press’ or ‘electronic pamphleteers’, but that has to be explained as well.

    BTW what is the word in Japanese?
