"...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..."
"...One of the simplest kinds of independent Web site is the weblog (pronounce it "we blog" if you're hip). According to Blogger..."
"...One of the few chances for indie Web publishers to collect some brass for the mantel is the South by Southwest Web Awards, where the Web's up-and-coming glitterati compete to win a coveted Earl award (get it? URL), in one of several categories, including Animation, Weblog, and Grrl Site...."
"...Reporter Dahr Jamail has posted on his blog an eloquent essay -- "Iraq on My Mind" -- on the double consciousness of knowing the sheer hell for Iraqis amid the illusory comfort of many American lives (www.dahrjamailiraq.com/weblog). It's a useful antidote to the droning credulity of that Pravda-like phrase, "The Bush administration said today ..." If the desperate messages of besieged Iraqis to friends abroad seem too anecdotal to be persuasive, perhaps the accumulating statistics of devastation might give you pause..."
"...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..."

"...I've been lurking on MetaFilter, the community-driven weblog dedicated to highlighting and discussing "the best of the Web," since I stumbled onto it a decade ago. And while "the blue" – the front-page of the site, which nicely captures the zeitgeist of the Web with user-submitted links – is highly trafficked, lately I've been spending more time on www.ask.metafilter.com, its well-regarded subsite, where MeFi members can submit questions and answers..."
"...Compared to the decades of hierarchical organization that modern movement conservatism required – financing right-wing think tanks, deregulating talk radio, and midwifing the Christian conservative movement (all arguably waning in importance) – the netroots' ascendancy looks like an overnight success story. Its origin is often traced to the Nineties impeachment trial of Bill Clinton, which liberal Web hub MoveOn.org formed expressly to oppose; a prototypical weblog, Bob Somerby's the Daily Howler (www.dailyhowler.com), also pushed back against the impeachment circus and its media facilitators..."

"...Blogging the act of writing a form of Internet diary, or "Weblog" represents a major new initiative by the Cox Newspapers-owned Statesman to find a perch in the modern media world, which is growing increasingly uninterested in stuffy old newspapers. With circulation sliding, the Statesman vigorously trumpets its Web sites, Statesman.com and Austin360.com, as the great new frontiers, where readers count more than subscribers and the paper's profits aren't siphoned off by those greedy paperboys..."
"...This doesn't excuse the Statesman, who ought to know better than to simply accept the word of a transit-hater like Daugherty. I've been covering the empty bus meme irregularly on my weblog at mdahmus.thebaba.com/blog/archives/cat_empty_buses.html..."
