Bloggers, this is your time

Bloggers, this is your time For seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, Time's Person of the Year for 2006 is you. Times Magazine voted the bloggers as the Person or People of the Year. The role of bloggers and citizen reporting is playing a very significant and increasingly important role in writing and commenting about events and news, and is getting the recognition of an important international magazine. With millions of bloggers in cyberspace, the amount of information generated is unbelieveable and they will present a serious challenge to the main stream media when news and information are expected to be packaged in an expected manner. Three cheers to all bloggers.

Hear hear, we bloggers are becoming a voice to be listened to. It is good we are no longer a lonely voice in the wilderness. However, while we are being hailed and appreciated in some places, there are still isolated locastions where people like us are not welcomed. Thankfully, such places are few and far between and teir numbers are dwindling fast.

It's one thing to be listened to, and another altogether to be taken seriously. The latter is not yet the case where blogs are concerned.

blog is only a few years old. they need to build up some credibility by the quality of the postings. only time will tell.

compare to msm, blog is only an infant. but it is growing up fast. and if msm continues to be what they are, presenting only one aspect of news and not interactive and slow, blogs will have a role to play. there is a huge vacuum to be filled.

One thing's for sure though. Bean's blog will never be taken more seriously than ice kachang.
