Chris Ashley writes about Blogs

A nice article by Chris Ashley, IST–Interactive University, about Weblogs (blogs). You probably know the article, but now you can read it again. Here.
As we continue to focus on the little things... I like how the article handles Links, in a very academic manner, by turning them into footnote links. Following the links might not be quite as comfortable, as it requires an extra click, but the text looks much more complete when printed, doesn’t it? (Did I mention that I do not have a printer? I am running a truly paperless office here.)
A nice quote from the concluding sentence of the above article comes from Kevin Kelly:“The Web Runs on Love, Not Greed”. I really hope it does again. I guess we should be thankful the bubble burst.


the wired magazine from may 2002 has also a fairly large article about blogging: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.05/mustread.html?pg=2

Thank you for the Link Jørgen!, the article had this nice little follow up, the top five Blogs, as compiled by http://blogdex.media.mit.edu/ : http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.05/mustread.html?pg=3 great.
This very Blog is currently listed as Offline, the old version of this blog made it into the top 50,000. Think about it... the old blog was #49,024. We are quite exclusive here, aren’t we?

Oh, I get it... it seems that only three people had linked to the old blog. Nobody might have linked to the current Blog 1.5, as it uses a new URL (still need to develop a Splashpage that will revive the wakeupBlog and all that.) Compared to that... 11576 Links were detected to Blogger.com (Google got only 1324, for some reason, making it #3, after Blogspot). Movabletype.org, home to the technology that makes this Blog possible got 743 Links and is #9, right be fore Jason Kottke’s blog with 734. Crazy... but somehow not very scientific. : ) Have you linked to this blog today?
