The San Francisco Chronicle tech critic on weblogs.

As the pool of blog writers has grown, perhaps inevitably so have complaints about quality. It's true that some bloggers seem to feel the need to log every sneeze.

But even drivel has its readership, Fake says. "Sure there are a hundred teenage boys typing, 'I'm bored. School sucks' every three hours, but their friends read them -- and that's their intended audience."

I've said this before and I'll say it again:

The beautiful thing about the Internet is that anyone can find something out there interesting to them. And anyone can find an audience for things they create. We no longer have to try to appeal to a mass audience. That's a good thing.

Okay, I've never said that before, but you get the point.
