Crikey! Blogs are dying!

May 9, 2006

Trevor Cook refers to the latest subscriber email from Australian Sh*t sheet Crikey that concludes that blogs and blogging are dying:

What most realise is that blogging is the illusion of connection, publishing into a void and thus doubly isolating. Those blogs that survive will and are evolv(ing) into multi-person sites, some with collective and decentred ways of uploading, others with hierarchies essentially identical to paper editing.

Bizarre. Crikey criticises politicians for being out of touch. Me thinks that Stephen Mayne may be totally out of touch, or maybe it’s just in his interest to down play a threat to the business?

  1. WTF, and I thought Crikey had their finger on the pulse.

    you could be right there, Duncan. They are being left behind over the past few years and their publishing model is showing signs of being out-dated.

  2. Crikey has never been on top of online. They are all about email. So 1999. The small thing they did on Darren earlier in the year shows how out of touch with new media they are.
