Corporate co-worker Eric Janssen is co-conspirator in a great group (and great looking) blog called webraw.
He’s written a thoughtful essay on how blogs are killing media gatekeepers. We’re all gatekeepers now, seems to be the bottom line. Bloggers, and I think this is true, filter our lives now through our bloggy lens. Everything is a potential blog post. And as we blog, we are voting on what’s worthy for other people to know about, just like real media types. Of course, I would add, some bloggers are bigger gatekeepers than others.
