The growth of a genre

Not a day goes by that I don't read something about how technology is changing the media we use to communicate. This constant state of flux is, in my admittedly biased view, what makes the whole world of messaging such an exciting one.

BusinessWeek is running this article, Too Much Buzz on Blogs, as a somewhat wide-ranging assessment of the blog's place in the wider world of media in the wake of the just-completed U.S. election. It's an interesting read that fits this mindset quite nicely.

How do I perceive this medium now that all the politicos are heading home to start planning for the next campaign? Simple: Time passes. Blogs evolve. Society changes. We all sit around the glowing computer monitor trying to figure it out.
