The opportunities for the good blogs to rise to the top are diminishing. For instance, as big celebrities set up blogs staffed with main stream media stars, this has a tendency to suck up the audience. The more traffic you get, the more people will come to your blog to pimp their own links.

A lot of people in the blog-punditry world have been looking at the problem in terms of rankism. A lot of the impetus came from Mary Hodder, who had access to the technorati data and could run some numbers: http://napsterization.org/stories/archives/000513.html

Hey, look, I'm a real person. As Ike said, things are just getting started. More to come...


Thanks for taking notice. I knew when I read Danny's post that it was going to attract attention, but certainly didn't see the firestorm coming.

In general, I think a lot people overreact to things like this, just too emotional. I tried to avoid that because, ultimately, a lot of us are still trying to figure all of this out. Also, the "nobody" concept seemed very appropriate in this situation. Does this mean I'm officially a nobody? :)


I had an interesting conversation with Daniel yesterday. (Real, live, voice call. Not Skype.)

There is an idea a-brewing, and there's room for a bunch of Nobodies in it...
