NYTimes continues to puzzle over “Web logs”
Monday, February 14th, 2005
More nominclaturial weirdness today in the NYTimes: “For some bloggers – people who publish the sites known as Web logs – it was a declaration that this was just the beginning.”
In fact, as I showed yesterday, almost nobody but the New York Times calls them “Web logs.” “Blogs” or “weblogs” are the terms everybody else uses. Why does the Times persist with this?
More unintentially funny commentary: “some in the traditional media are growing alarmed as they watch careers being destroyed by what they see as the growing power of rampant, unedited dialogue.” Wow, beware “the growing power of rampant, unedited dialogue.” Look out! Readers are writing! Citizens are talking!
