Bloggerati

Blogbursts. RSS. Blog Swarms on the look out for prey. Scripted blog activites, seemingly spontaneous. Ghost written blogs. People hired and fired because of blogs. Syndications. THE DEAR DIARY DAYS of blogging have gone forever. Enter the Big Wave. The Hype.

Bloggerati Unlike Digerati Are Not Elistist

Blogging a way to become a writer. But then, do I really want to become a writer in the classic sense of the word - using blogging as a short cut? No. Not really.

Blogging in and of itself is a new way of interlinked, interactive verbal expression, where text itself is the applicaton, the interface. It is neither push, nor pull.

It's networked. Connected. And it's sustainable. It's word of mouth in every respect. It's the re-emergence, the rebirth, the renaissance of traditional modes of communication - the conversation, the salon talk, the shop talk, the gossip - transported, mapped, captured and enabled in new electronic media.

Unlike digerati - bloggerati are not elitist - they are no avantgarde - only early adapters.

I do not want trees dying for my self-expression. It's that simple.

Bloggerati.

    Hello Bloggerati,

    I have just found this on NPR.org, which seems to suppot the non-elitist bloggerati
    claim:
    A homeless blogger draws 1000 vistors a day by maintaining a blog.
    Here is the listening link:
