I've been reading blogs since before they were bringing down Big Three networks. In fact, I was reading Instapundit before 9/11! (Although I'm sure that claim is now one of those made by many more people than possibly could have been there, rather like Woodstock.). Until now I've limited my active participation to the occassional email. The 60 Minutes debacle, or more accurately, the discussion the 60 Minutes debacle sparked, made me realize that the blogosphere depends, like democracy, on widespread participation from a diverse populace. So here I am, doing my little part.
