I had a great conversation with Susan Palmer at the Eugene Register-Guard a week or so ago. We talked about weblogs, and also online identity, online writing that isn't
Journalism, some Blogger history, and how weblogs differ from big media. Her story about weblogs was published today, and a few quotes from me made the cut: The Blog Connection
. In addition to several Eugene-based weblogs, she mentioned this site and ORblogs
(a site I run devoted to Oregon weblogs) in the links at the end of the article. I'm glad local papers are starting to tune into local weblogs—it seems there could be a natural symbiotic relationship there with enough respect from both sides.
