Some questions (a recap and an addition) ...

- has blogging made the audience more aware of the processes behind knowledge production? has it made professionals more sensitive to explaining and revealing their processes of knowledge production?

- Check the Pew Internet & American Life Project ( report on blogging from last year, I think.

- Does blogging, meant to watchdog the press, interpret the press, or compete with the press, ever actually chill the behavior of the press?

- Although blogging has brought to light very specific news moments such as the Trent Lott racism/gaffe and the Dan Rather memo forgery/authenticity, do you think blogging -- by journalists, pundits, citizens, solidiers, civilians, refugees, etc. -- has at all affected the way the Iraq War has unfolded so far? I mean, this is arguably the biggest news story out there, in terms of civilian, contractor, and military loss of life, geopolitical ramifications, religious and cultural tolerance, increase or decrease to the global use of terrorism, and financial cost to current and future taxpayers, right? Do blogs, in this country or elsewhere, matter to this set of issues, or not?
