I have often said this and I preach it anywhere and everywhere I go. The net, the blogosphere, is the future of all media, replicating the media landscape of Lincoln. For as much harm as it can do (i.e. spreading the deadly poison of radical islam, disseminating critical info on bombmaking, nuclear site info, etc.), I believe it will serve a much greater good. The 2004 presidential election was an indication but was just the tip of the iceberg. The Blogosphere changed the course of the election. The Swift Boat boys, the Powerline and Charles Johnson/Little Green Footballs expose of Rathergate........... this IMHO changed the course of human events.........if not for the blogboys, the chances are pretty damn good kerry/annan/chirac would be in the whitehouse, selling this constitutional republic down the river like a $2 dollar whore
Imagine what 2008 will bring...................what a time to be alive!
