What's amazing to me about blogs ...

"What is amazing to me about blogs ... is that it's all text. People have to have some verbal ability to operate in this medium and there's been a lot of creativity--the invention of emoticons, for instance--in the way people express themselves in writing." -- Sam Potts

I like the following quote from Jon Friedman, Media Web columnist for Market Watch, particularly what he says about blogs:

“The internet is playing a very large and influential role in forming public tastes. The public likes what it gets on the internet: the convenience, the speed, hopefully the reliability of the news and commentary. And now you have blogs entering the picture in a forceful way, changing everything. Now anyone can be a publisher or journalist. As a result, these pretty stodgy magazines and newspapers that have relied for a century on the same formula have to hit themselves in the backside and get it together and adapt.”

The quote came from an article in PR WEEK that was headlined:

"10 Media Trends to Watch"

Here is a link to the article; I found it quite good.
