Speaking of blogging
Mike Russert called the wave of politcal blogs "real-time democracy." This is no different than the olden days of writing letters and pamphlets. Remember the Federalist Papers? These were published to influence opinion on the Constitution.
The Federalist, commonly referred to as the Federalist Papers, is a series of 85 essays written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison between October 1787 and May 1788. The essays were published anonymously, under the pen name "Publius," in various New York state newspapers of the time.So political blogging is the modern-day equivalent of The Federalist. It's just that now pretty much anyone has the opportunity to express their opinion to anyone who is willing to listen.
Of course, it doesn't have to be political (or personal -- see below). In our case, it's on Computer Games. Specifically Rise of Nations.
