Again it comes down to the fact that many blogs are conversations. The office where I work has around 20 people in it. Many of them check out my blog everyday and wonder down the hallway to finish the comments in real time (as they don't converse online). People confuse a blog with a online or offline magazine when they are two different things all together. We need divergence, not convergence with the MSNBC's of the world. Dvorak and other over-touted articles forget that. Canada's National Post waded into the blogging debate last week with this less than profound article. The article misses the point completely. I blogged it and tossed in my two cents here.
