The Globe and Mail on community blogs March 2, 2002 4:54 AM   Subscribe

The Globe and Mail on community blogs and blogging as the new intellectual model for the web: "But, in fact, another kind of intellectual-content site has survived, one that makes much fuller use of the Web's unique structure. And the new model is flourishing." It seems that the new model is us.

I wonder when the mainstream press is going to discover wikis? they're mentioned here, but almost as if they are a sub-set of weblogs.

Cool, thanks for catching this, I would have never seen it otherwise, eh.

There's another version of the story on the Globe site, with 2 more weblog articles and an interesting set of links. (mcwetboy, I'm not stalking you, I swear.)

(Haven't lived in Waterloo since 1995, Todd. You'll never find me in Ottawa. Never I say!)

Re the other articles: Jiminy, Ingram is writing about blogs now. . . .

Another piece on Blogging, this one from the Register, that I think hasn't been mentioned yet. Mostly a response to the response to Dvorak, but not bad.

What a bizarre set of "personal weblogs" the Globe chose to link to. Is Ingram on a diet, or what?

SomethingAwful parodies a webblog (well, TV's Wil Wheaton's blog, at least) on their fake front page today as well...

Update : SA parody moved here.

I dunno if wikis will go mainstream anytime soon... the mental model is probably too confusing for those who aren't super web-savvy. And most wiki interfaces suck.
