(NYT) A New Book Scratches At A Weblog Wound
Should Bookblog, a project to collect 9/11-related blog entries (e.g. opinion on WoT events, not day-of reactions), exclude those veteran webloggers. Jason Kottke and others say no. I suppose I could have read a response on the Op-Ed page, but Ariel Sharon sent one in that week too. More here

*cough* That should be blogbook {the NYT got it right}, which is a project of Eric Olsen (a liberal warblogger) and Ted Frank aka Max Power, in my guesstimation a moderate Democrat blogger (pro-gay, distrustful of social conservatives) with no overpowering ideology. Those blogs have links to other commentary on the article, as Max says, "before it's published".

War blog editors need to make it clear to their audience that they are not the only kind of Weblog out there

Am I alone in thinking that this idea is silly?

Somebody please make it stop. Here's a challenge: Don't say the word "blog" for a week.

You mean on MetaFilter, the community blog? Damn... I'll have to start again.

I guess this proves what I've been saying:

Warbloggers: Legends in Their Own Minds.

Like anyone gives a shit about their opinions.

Funny how the article mentions how old-skool bloggers are sad/upset that warbloggers like Reynolds are rewriting blogging history and then goes on to quote Reynolds making up blogging history.
