Borgs or blogs? You decide!
By Dave Winer on Saturday, August 07, 2010 at 6:04 PM.

Rex Hammock, my Republican blogging buddy in Nashville, recalls that in 2005, Forbes (a Republican tool) ran a cover that announced the "attack of the blogs" and warned that they "destroy brands and wreck lives." Now in 2010, they run blogs themselves. Heh. Whatta you know! permalink

BTW, I kid Rex about being a Republican. Every time I do it, he denies it. Sort of. :-) permalink

So... Are we bloggers or the The Borg?  permalink

Blogging is everywhere nowadays. Not everyone does it. Just NBBs, but there are lots of them. The cost of publishing is down pretty close to zero. As Papa Doc used to say in the early days: We'll fact check your ass. And I forget who observed that we're watching you watch us watch them watch us watch you watch them, but we're still watching them watch us watch them watch you watch all of that. permalink
