so after looking at this Graph of the Digg effect (note: Digg which is as they describe- "Digg is a technology news website that employs non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allowing an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do", or in simple terms is "a website where users/viewers contribute as well as comment on news stories they think is interesting". its like Slashdot) the graph has confirmed a trend i have noticed. The Blog as it stands today, has become another means for information to be sensationalized. Much like the way the news media has been evolving for years. kinda saddens me in truth because what it means is that information is now more about the fad and catching the fad than understanding the information.

just an observation i have in regards to blogging and such...
