I heard a recounting of weblog history on the radio this morning, and it%u2019s completely wrong. If it were just once I would ignore it, but I hear this history repeated on the CBC over and over. Even a tiny bit of research on the matter would have avoided this problem. It seems that someone at the CBC would rather go with their gut on the history of the weblog than actually look it up.
Rochelle’s of course right on the money in this regard. And she’s right about the need for a book on the topic of what / where blogs are / come from for education and higher ed. Got one? I didn’t think so.
