Glenn Reynolds tells the future
Instapundit, run by Professor Glenn Reynolds, is one of the foremost contributors to the political blogosphere. His latest article for Tech Central Station has some good thoughts about where the whole thing is headed in the big picture. I think he's right as far as anyone can predict what the true impact of weblogs will have on our culture and society, and of course anyone who has spent much time fooling around with them probably considers most of this pretty obvious. Still, it's well said and lays it out for the uninitiated...worth a read I think:

Over the next few years, blogs will grow both more and less significant. They'll grow more significant because more people will be reading them, and -- at least as important -- more people will be writing them. That will expand their impact considerably. On the other hand, they'll grow less significant, in a way, because they'll grow more ordinary. Like other communications media, from newspapers to email, they'll just become part of the background, and their particular thread of impact will be less noticeable.
