books on blogs

The New York Review of Books has a piece reviewing ten books on blogs. Not great, but kinda interesting. We need to write more about superheros.

    In my mind, the money paragraph of the article:

    For many bloggers infamy is better than no kind of famy at all. In his book The Future of Reputation, Daniel Solove quotes Jessica Cutler of the Washingtonienne blog: “Some people with blogs are never going to get famous, and they’ve been doing it for, like, over a year. I feel bad for them…. Everyone should have a blog. It’s the most democratic thing ever.” To go unnoticed in this democracy is to not exist. This kind of existential pressure, naturally, ups the ante on language.
