Blogging = Conversations

The Economist touches upon the history of blogs and discusses their current state in this article:

Conversations have a life of their own. They tend to move in unexpected directions and fluctuate unpredictably in volume. It is these unplanned conversational surges that tend to bring the blogosphere to the attention of the older and wider (non-blogging) public and the mainstream media. Germany, for instance, has been a relatively late adopter of blogging—only 1% of blogs are in German, according to Technorati, compared with 41% in Japanese, 28% in English and 14% in Chinese.


  • I read a few articles in the survey on new media carried in the latest issue of the Economist. Besides having found the article on blogging refreshing I liked the metaphor 'Toilet Walls of the Internet'. In a sense it is apt that although blogs are proliferating the content on many is nothing to write home about.
