Why blogging matters

Following my essay in last week’s Sydney Morning Herald on how blogging has revolutionised information around the world, ABC Radio National produced a story last Friday on similar issues, and featured Iranian and Iraqi blogger friends (and yours truly).

As I’ve said many times before, any writer/journalist/current affairs obsessive who doesn’t think that blogging has changed media for the better needs to get out more (though I’m well aware of the major limitations, discussed in my essay above.)
