Reading Cringely’s prediction that “with the continued (and to me totally inexplicable) rise of web logs, someone — maybe Google &8212; will come up with an effective blog search engine to read all that junk for us and extract what we really care about,” Kevin Marks explains it all very succinctly:
You don’t need to read them all, you just need to find a few you like and read those — the searching is done by individual selection.
And Google does index them very well — the individually made links in weblogs are a key part of what Google consolidates into a consensus about what is worth reading. If the weblogs say something interesting on a topic, Google will find it.
By the way, is spelling weblog as two words a marker for “not getting it”?
