Dave Weinberger on Blogging's Rubicon


Dave Weinberger is one of the convention bloggers at the DNC this week. He believes that blogging the convention has changed how blogging is viewed in some fundamental ways. He writes:

The credentialed bloggers are sitting in the section of the bleachers designated "Blogger Boulevard." Want to know exactly where it is? Easy: It's on the other side of the Rubicon.

This event marks the day that blogging became something else. Exactly what isn't clear yet, and the culture clash is resulting in public functions that, because there is no single culture of blogging, are Dostoyevskian in their awkwardness.
