I came across a pretty angry guy this morning. What is he angry about? Well, us, bloggers and this blogging plague that has infected the Web. This extract from one of his blog posts (ironic isn’t it?) nicely captures his view of blogs:
"I am an Insignificant Microbe in the TTLB Ecosystem"
This is my evaluation in the glorious "blogosphere" that turns us all into publishers, columnists, "citizen journalists", "trolls", whatever.
Basically what is being measured in this abomination and abuse of an "ecosystem" is how much attention this blog gets. That is exactly the same measure as is used in advertising. And, of course, there is lots of blog advertising. And lots of services to try to jam ads into them
Apparently wikis and chat are far better because they are more consensual and current (respectively). Blogs seem to be bad because they are apparently neither. There are some pretty interesting people out there!
