Thar we go again
Been thinking about the blogging concept lately. I hope the people who read this get something out of it -- it's been worthwhile, for the connections to people more than anything else. The whole phenomenon has a CB Radio feel to it, though -- I feel like media hype of it already peaked with the Democratic National Convention, when it was the big media story. All the coverage reminds me of the turn-of-the-century dot-com craze, when completely untried, unworkable products had IPOs in the billions. Just like the Internet didn't collapse, blogging won't go away -- but there's going to be a major shakeup that's probably already beginning. While there are a few Yahoo!s, Googles and Amazons out there, a lot of today's blogs are more like pets.com, destined for the dustbin of Super Bowl commercials past.
And Ozblog? I aspire to be more like an Infoseek or a Sportsline -- a promising concept that sells out to the highest bidder the first chance it gets. Big Media, are you reading?
