: I left the interactivity panel (below) before it ended, so I didn’t stand up to snark.

As I thought about it, what bugs me is that all this fancy Flash to try to show off and supposedly involve readers only involves them in the stories, not in the action. That is to say, so a thousand people come in and play a sim-Sim game to fix some problem but it ends there.

In weblogs, people have their say and try to influence people in power. So what they have to say does not end there.

Interactivity isn’t about pushing buttons.

It is about interacting with power.
