"...What is "Blog Reblog"? A gallery show? An event? A comment on our modern forms of photographic dissemination? I suppose it’s all of those, but for lovers of contemporary photography, it’s worth a trip to the Big Medium galleries...."
"...Such is the case with his fun little jaunt known as Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog..."
"...There's that old saw that says that you eat with your eyes first, hence the emphasis on making food visually appealing in restaurants, grocery stores, and advertising. But the ways in which this is translated to the Internet are of particular interest to Stacie Capone, who organized and will moderate SXSW Interactive panel The Moguls of Food Porn, featuring Nadia Giosia of the Cooking Channel's Bitchin' Kitchen and Nick Evans of the blog Macheesmo, as well as other foodies whose unique approaches to visual representations of food incite that Pavlovian response to things you didn't even know you wanted to eat...."
"...For the record, KVUE anchor maiden Christine Haas actually wrote, all by herself, her recent blog entry on the station's Web site, detailing her 16-month-old son's prowess at peekaboo. In fact, for any disillusioned viewers wondering, she really does have a son; she's not making it up..."
"...If 2006 was the year blogs really made it onto the Interactive agenda, 2007 is the year user-generated content rules. More than a dozen daytime panels will attempt to unravel the complex relationships between comment and commerce, between microbrands and marketers, and to consider the mercantile implications of social media like blogs and wikis, in addition to their cultural and personal impact...."
"...A "blog," short for weblog, is a personal Web site where the author records thoughts, ideas, images, and links in brief entries that are posted, usually in reverse chronological order. Weblogs became "blogs" in 1999, when Peter Merholz wrote, "For What It's Worth I've decided to pronounce the word 'weblog' as wee'- blog..."
"...The New York Times is famous for transforming the hip into the obsolete merely by doing a feature about it. So, deciding blogging was the zeitgeist (two years after it had become last year's zeitgeist), the Times sent a naïf down to check out the bloggers at the Republican convention last August..."
"...Not danah boyd. The blogging scene is still hot with debate about what happened weeks ago during South by Southwest Interactive 04..."
"...Our Gay Place Blog has been blowing up with new buggers and bloggers and peepses. We'd hate for you to miss a peep..."
"...On a leap of faith, she relocated to Austin and embarked on a new career.

"..."Who's here to find out about libel?" asked publishing law expert Dineen Wasylik. She used that line to kick off her quick guide to reporting on the web (Journalism in the Blogosphere: A Legal Guide to Internet "Press") this afternoon If you thought you could get away with saying anything on a blog, just because it's on-line, think again..."

"...Hey everybody, I'll once again be live-blogging the Texas Relays for Track & Field News, the nation's most important magazine covering the sport. Of course, if you live in Austin, you should just get down to the stadium and watch them in person, but if you can't, click on that link to follow the highlights. I won't be at the stadium today due to the responsibilities of my other job (covering politics for the Chronicle), but I'll be there all day Friday and Saturday..."

"...Blog! If blog weren't the single most overused term blogging through the blogosphere, we'd love to blog it. Television and print news, facing declining viewership, readership, revenue, and ratings, have tried to both sink and tether themselves to the new information medium, running features maligning the weblog as a shadowy consortium of partisan hacks exempt from campaign finance laws, then trumpeting it as the high tech evolution of a free press..."

"...The concept and ethos of No Depression as it existed in print largely would not work on the Web. Alden and fellow founder Peter Blackstock attributed much of the magazine’s woes to the emergence of online media and rising influence of blogs, bemoaning that music criticism had been reduced to press releases and mp3s with no real substance, insight, or inspiration..."
"...Despite the warnings of my three visiting Christmas spirits, I’ve neglected my blog again. This time, however, it wasn’t because of laziness or boredom or even the lure of sweet, sweet Internet pornography. Nope, I haven’t been blogging lately because, when my positive, pro-Cowboy rants became laughingly naive, I hung up my keyboard, afraid I’d jinxed my beloved team. But on Christmas, when the Cowboys fell 23-7 and dropped the division, though I hadn't written a thing about the game, I realized my blog isn’t jinxing the Cowboys..."
"...Back in the days before Yelp and Twitter, a group of intrepid Austin taco lovers dedicated themselves to sharing their passion for and research about the distinctive variety of breakfast tacos available in our fair city. The wildly popular blog Taco Journalism (www.tacojournalism.blogspot.com) was started in 2006, becoming a must-read for locals and taco-curious visitors alike..."
"...When I spoke to Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway, the authors of the previously anonymous blog Thug Kitchen and its accompanying cookbook (released October 7), shit hadn’t gotten that real yet. Sure, people were pissed that the L.A.-based duo turned out to be young, white, hipsters – but the real drama lay ahead...."

"...Many Chinese citizens flocked to his side, spreading out to gather the names that the government was unwilling to assemble.

"...Enter Thou Shall Craigslist (www.thoushallcraigslist.blogspot.com), an Austin-specific blog that does the weeding out for you to present a finely curated sampling of the best the site has to offer: a vintage cedar chest, an Eames-style armchair, a Norman Rockwell reprint you swear you saw in your grandparents' foyer decades ago...."

"...Warning: Reading this blog entry may compel you to grab two mirrors and look at the back of your head. Phew. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who peppers her everyday language with phrases like "hair whorl direction" or "attached earlobes" or "recessive alleles." But I digress...."
"...I'll admit I'd gotten burned out on my Dallas Cowboys blog. It seemed like I've been making the same lame jokes and obvious observations all season..."
"...It’d be a misnomer to call anything that started in 2005 an “institution,” but Austinist – the scrappy group blog started that year by Ben Brown as part of Jake Dobkin and Jen Chung’s NYC-based Gothamist network of culture websites – has certainly established itself as an important player in the Austin media landscape since then...."
"...Today and tomorrow, the Texas Senate is expected to vote on the four beer bills, Senate Bills 515-518, and a fifth, SB 639, introduced at the last minute by Commerce Committee Chair John Carona, R-Dallas.

"...Austin's sweet, LGBTQ music/multimedia fest has gotten some national blog love this week; too bad Autostraddle and HuffPo totally screwed it up...."
"...Sloth enthusiasts/insanely cute couple Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell – seriously, they’re like a robust sneeze shy of gratingly adorable (grating only in that we envy their simpatico-ness and facial symmetry) – did an interview with NY Mag's Vulture blog and name-checked Austin as witness protection paradise...."
