Nice work, Lenslinger! I bet we all owe some of our hit count to you in the next few days.
I don't know how you did it, but you managed to hit the most salient points within a teeny timeframe: blogs fulfilling the promise of the web; reading blogs for quality, not quantity; blogs as a means for transmitting information, independent of social and geographical boundaries; Greensboro's place in the greater blogosphere.
A longer piece is warranted, and I'm sure it will happen someday. When it does, I hope you're behind the lens and in the edit chair.
