Isn't that just 'million monkeys' argument?

I'm with you on that though, can I have a banana please?

I think blogs form a very tight community in a certain way - even though people don't acknowledge it. In the recent study that I carried out on the campaign I started, I found out that the blogosphere (a group of blogs in this context) carried out messages a lot quicker from each other to each other than other types of websites. Blogs are also a lot more interlinked between each other than other types of websites.

And these are the basic reasons I would call the blogosphere a certain type of virtual community with very lose boundaries and no concrete way to definy it.

As the net gets older, day by day, It'll imitate life (or life will imitate it). In the early years you'd have communities. Places where people gather. Like a club or a secret gathering place. Now you have people connecting freely. You choose. You don't need to be a part of anything prefabricated.

psi: well, maybe. Does that invalidate the point?

pni: I think you misunderstood. Or maybe I misunderstand you. I'm talking really about the phrase: "If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, it is a duck."

Not to forget about the IIPM issue that rocked indian Blogsphere. It was one hell of an incident that proved that Blogosphere is at par with MSM(main stream media) in all corners. Though the MSM may not share my views ;)
