Wired EIC explains why blogs are better than traditional journalism

I may have to stop reading Wired EIC Chris Anderson's website because I'm afraid I'm going to get whiplash from vigorously nodding my head in agreement.

This time, he elegantly sums up blog journalism's strengths, makes two points I tried to pound into my Online Newswriting students' heads, and properly scopes the domain of blogs (in short, niches).

He also admits his own publication could do a better job doing the things blogs do better.
