Yet more on AOL blogs
: Clay Shirky has posted his reaction to the AOL blogging demo.
Clay focuses on the community-vs-publishing models of blogging as if that were still an open question at AOL. From what I saw, there’s no question mark there; AOL is starting with the community (LiveJournal) model. That may be a smart start, considering AOL’s roots, but if that’s where they stop, that will be a big mistake.
: Not surprisingly, my Technorati link cosmos exploded with lots of new links to Buzzmachine because of the AOL report. Surprisingly, the traffic itself did not take a corresponding jump. A single Instapundit link garner more. Not sure what the reason is: Perhaps Doc Searls is right: We’re just getting tired of blogging about blogging.
