"The Blog Establishment" is the title of New York magazine's cover story this week (February 20). Associated articles include: "Ranking The Top 50" (BoingBoing is no. 1, Andrew Sullivan no. 50), "The Traffic Racket," "Blogonomics." There's a nice timeline of Blog history, starting with Links.net, the first Blog ever, created in 1994 by Swarthmore student Justin Hall. For me, at least, the article was fun and informative.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
