Blogging: the wheat and the chaff

I found this link in a favorite blog of mine called "As Time Goes By" and I want to share it with you because I found it valuable in explaining to me the importance of understanding blogging in terms of how information is processed these days. It is about freedom of speech in the form of blogging and how it has sometimes supplanted a rather cumbersome mass media in America.... among other things...

"....On Tuesday, Jay published a story on (reprinted from Huffington Post) titled, “A Blog is a Little First Amendment Machine.” Due to blogs and the emerging two-way nature of the web, Jay explains, media is no longer a one-way street from producer to audience...."

We have the good fortune to be born in a time when we can be empowered to express ourselves and communicate in innovative ways, if we choose. We have the additional fortuity to be employed in a library during these exciting times.
