Blog influence discussed on WHYY 28 June, 2008

Posted by David Anderson in Uncategorized.

I thank WHYY for recognizing the influence of the blogosphere. Feel free to watch the clip. It is posted by our friend Tyler Nixon. Thank you Dave Burris. for letting me sit in for you. Mike and Shirley were a pleasure even to a remote guest. Since the other blogs are talking about it (kindly–thankfully), I can’t let ours fall behind.

I am fascinated that just 4 years ago, this was not a daily source of information for the vast majority of people. Now it is the number 1 source of political information for those under 30. I have seen marked increases in readership in the past year. The Internet is now a source as utilized as daily papers for political information. The world is changing. If gas prices go much higher, we may not be find delivering papers affordable.

Thanks, Dave. It was a little rough that we couldn’t “see” you during the broadcast…it helps to have eye contact. Although somewhat nerve-wracking, it was enjoyable and I hope to be better at it next time (if there is a next time !). It was a please to “meet” you.

I agree, but it helped that except for once, he said our names before asking a question. It was a little rough with no visual cues, but I enjoyed the experience. It was my first time on a remote with no in person interviewer. It was great to see you after the fact.
