about a blog

Using yet another (new) "blog" prefixed neologism (blogocracy), PhD student and weblog-keeper danah boyd defends the "blogging of blogging" culture and the coverage provided by weblogs at the convention:
The blogosphere is also happily commenting on its own presence, significance and role. Blogging is a relatively young phenomenon, and its growing pains and identity search are ever transparent. The tendency of bloggers to talk about blogging is often criticized, yet this practice of self-reflection is precisely what makes blogging a valuable contribution to public discourse. [salon]
It's all an expectations game.
