Arrington in Time Top 100

This is staggering.

Congrats to Michael on a position well deserved. I cant remember if a blogger has ever made the list before, maybe Drudge but he’s never counted himself as a blogger. It’s perhaps a watershed moment that a Blogger can be counted in the Top 100 most influential people in the world, next to world leaders and uber-celebrities.

I’d say blogging has come of age, but that was really 2004. It’s something big though: a new level of maturity perhaps, an acceptance that blogging and bloggers have a major role in todays media landscape.

I was suppose to be at the Future of Journalism summit in Sydney today but I’ve got too many things on to have made it, but I would have love to have bought this up. Perhaps someone will.
