Blogs: Oh, for the days when they were just a harmless paradise for geeks
October 24, 2007 § Leave a comment
Although I still stand behind my old-fashioned, disdainful attitude towards blogs (they’re scary! anybody can have one! that means people who aren’t funny or smart can have one!), even conventional journalists are hip to the quick reactionary sales that a single entry can generate. The music festival covered in this article proves as much. However, with conventional journalists, clever marketers, and record company interns and executives alike infiltrating blogs and other havens of “free” expression, won’t consumers lose faith in the validity of the opinions they find online?
