A perpetual communal effort

Tiny Lien writes along the lines of McLuhan.

Blogs are a perpetual communal effort to collect, categorize, and disseminate all different kinds of information (from personal reflections on food preferences to deadly serious discussions of current world affairs). The information and the people who create and maintain the blogs which present the information are separate from each other–but nonetheless act as a whole (providing a hybrid map of the external world AND the internal worlds of the 50 million or so people who participate in this constantly-expanding worldwide discussion of…pretty much everything).
