Who knew weblogs even had economics?
That said, the article conflates journals with topical weblogs, which confuses the results. Personal journals are more frequently intended to foster conversation between and connection with "friends" (anyone who looks at one or two or more LiveJournal journals will understand that the term is to be used somewhat loosely) whereas a topical weblog (wave to the nice people!) is more usually meant to pontificate (minus the lovely pointy hat) to the masses. Even if the masses are just one or two occasional passers-by. (They also don't necessarily seem to become conversational.)Posted by iain at February 11, 2003 02:21 PM
