Do Blogs Create More Noise than Signal?
This sort of conversation is always brought up by the elitists who resent the fact that they might have to shout a little louder to be heard.
Oh well, live with it:
1. The question is illogical because the more bloggers that are out there, the more potential readers you will have;2. The question is moot because it doesn’t matter. Even if only 1% of the blogosphere is just signal then it’s worth it because it is a cheap, empowering technology;
3. The definition of “noise” is subjective;
4. The question is irrelevant because the blogosphere makes democracy and freedom of speech universal, and that is a good thing. Unless of course if you are an anal retentive, dictatorial type (are you listening Kim);
5. And that’s why they call it broadband. There’s room enough for everybody.
I rest my case… source
