Paul Chaney has rounded up “the usual suspects” (that’s from Casablanca) and suggested a slate of elected officials for the blogosphere. Microsoft’s most high profile blogger, Robert Scoble, as President; law prof Glenn Reynolds as Attorney General, etc. Much as Paul’s idea has some charm, I completely disagree with this approach to describing the blogosphere. It misses the point. The point (to my mind) is that blogging is way more than a couple hundred folks who’ve heard of each other’s blogs and link back and forth to each other. It’s a new way of spreading ideas, starting conversations, informing and persuading that threatens both the established MSM (mainstream media) as well as the way corporate America has been communicating to and marketing to customers (through PR and Madison Avenue ad agencies). Sorry, Paul’s slate gets no votes from me. Now click that Comments link below. What do YOU think?
