Jeff Jarvis on how big media and big politics has been in denial over the success of blogs, and other online phenomena, like the ubiquitous Wikipedia. Neil MacIntosh with a more sober reflection on blogging. On another tack: the 2005 Bloggies have opened for nominations, as have the European Weblog Awards!
