Defining blogs

in Uncategorized

Andy Lark has a great post contrasting blogs with the "traditional" web:

Web = Cold                     Blogosphere = Warmth
Web = Transmission       Blogosphere = Conversation
Web = Place                    Blogosphere = Community
Web = Anonymous          Blogosphere = Personal
Web = Company              Blogosphere = People
Web = Content                Blogosphere = Expression
Web = Cookie Cutter      Blogosphere = Individual
Web = Closed                  Blogosphere = Participatory
Web = Unresponsive       Blogosphere = Gives thanks….

To that I’d add:

Web = Organized                            Blogosphere = Chaotic
Web = Predictable                          Blogosphere = Unpredictable
Web = Find                                    Blogosphere = Browse
Web = Comprehensively shallow        Blogosphere = Incompletely deep
Web = Broad                                   Blogosphere = Niche

We’re hoping to find the intersection point in that venn diagram.
