Saturday, July 27, 2002 on blogging:

Weblogs are a grassroots phenomenon. They weren't created in a board room and unleashed on waiting consumers. They were created by people with something to say in a format that works well on the Web. With all of the media attention and debate surrounding weblogs, it's easy to lose sight of what they are: people speaking and connecting online. We called this site Blogroots because we feel it's important to keep this grassroots nature in mind.

Blogroots sniffs at the New York Times for its Q&A column yesterday on blogging: "The Times doesn't say who's asking -- chances are they wrote the question as well as the answer." And the site notes William Safire, godfather of Old Media, weighs in on blogging this week in his On Language Column. So it must be official: blogging has made it.
