Back to Dumenco for a second. I think it’s interesting that the whole argument was based around the notion of “blogger as cool”.
I find that surprising, in itself.
Here in Down Under, being a blogger is not cool. Especially to the media crowd I’m a part of, it connotes amateur hour on the web. Very few journalists have professional blogs because professional journalists write for newspapers, magazines and websites. Bloggers, on the other hand, are the dirty masses pretending they can do journalism too.
I wonder how long it will stay like that.
