Blog!: How the Newest Media Revolution is Changing Politics, Business, and Culture

I’ve been reading this book since yesterday and it’s been really good so far. There is a brief intro on the history of blogging, but then the book is a compilation of interviews with some of the most popular and influential bloggers of all time. Scoble (including his Corporate Weblog Manifesto), Wil Wheaton, Adam Curry, and many others. I’m not too far into the book, but each interview so far is 3-4 pages, so it’s easy to read just a few pages if you don’t have the time to read the entire chapter or section.

There is a lot of great info on the # of blogs being visited and a real look into how blogging is changing the way people obtain and distribute information on the net. (example: for coverage about the 2004 election, 7 million reader visited DailyKos for their news compared to 5.7 million for FoxNews online.) Worth checking to see if your library carries it!
