The state of blogging...

"By the end of 2004 blogs had established themselves as a key part of online culture. Two surveys by the Pew Internet & American Life Project in November established new contours for the blogosphere: 8 million American adults say they have created blogs; blog readership jumped 58% in 2004 and now stands at 27% of internet users; 5% of internet users say they use RSS aggregators or XML readers to get the news and other information delivered from blogs and content-rich Web sites as it is posted online; and 12% of internet users have posted comments or other material on blogs. Still, 62% of internet users do not know what a blog is." View PDF of Report

Good sources of information about about RSS aggregators and XML readers are easy to find. We have an RSS feed at the bottom of this column, "Louisiana Headline Links --- Source: New Orleans Sun." You can also see how this blog is distributed as an RSS feed by going to http://www.jbv.com/whatsnew.

This is an exciting new medium, and we're testing the limits. Let me know how you feel about an occasional post concerning the technology underlying this communication method.
