Quantity, Quality and Quarry

A report on NPR's All Things Considered tonight put the number of blogs in China at half a million.

Rick Bruner, writing at iMedia Connection last April, reported Pew's findings that up to 7% of U.S. adults, or 8.8 million people in the U.S. alone, have a blog. He adds that Technorati adds 10,000 new blogs a day to its list.

A more recent CNN report reported from Technorati that a new blog is born every 7.4 seconds.

Yet in the past month, no fewer than three people have asked me how my "blob" is going.

And still we write.

Dan Rather and Eason Jordan were just practice laps. Let me assure you that from now on, EVERYTHING said. Every video shown. Every picture presented from any traditional media source is going to be scrutinized. The level of scrutiny will make your editors blush.

The gatekeepers are under attack. I’m not saying its right or wrong, but it is the new reality.
