Strong opinions, weakly held

  1. I think I have to agree with the “none of the above” assessment. While blogs pulled ahead 3-2, it was just barely, and in reality shows more of a parity with the pros at best. While the triumph of Wikipedia is both completely unsurprising and a solid emergence of a third type of online reporting that Winer did not predict. Wikipedia, with its cites and sources and peer review process, addresses the questions of bias that plague both blogs and traditional media.
