The growing local blogosphere

This evening's Cortland Standard has an article called "Blogosphere gives rise to present-day penny presses", taking a look at the phenomenon of blogging. I talked with them a few times over the past few weeks, and I'm glad to see the article. It doesn't seem caught up in the mythology of bloggers as a powerful new force, or stuck in the "wow, these bloggers are ignorant and foul-mouthed" that I sometimes see too.

They interviewed me, and also Mary Ann Sumner of Five Wells and Dryden Democrats, Frank Hogg of PrebleNY.com, Billy Beck of Two--Four, and Alex Reid of Digital Digs.

Great article, Simon!

It was very informative. The photo of you looks particularly studious, and we Drydenites appreciate the excellent product placement of Elizabeth Gutchess' new Dryden History book. You deserve a second orchid!
