I think Jonah Goldberg of the Corner understands this. His recent reaction to Robin Wright's response to one of his posts was telling. Robin Wright is a "big swinging" in the Old Media. I think she writes for theNY Times but I could be mistaken. Anyway, Goldberg wrote that he impressed by her rebuttal but more impressed by the fact that she took the time to respond. It was a tiny watershed in blogging history: Robin Wright emailed a blogger. As bloggers, we know we are off-off Broadway. We are the poor of the publishing world at least in the sense of poorly paid.
Perhaps my initial negative reaction to this st. blogger was tainted by a proprietary interest in the mediocrity of the blogosphere, in the "finally, a home for me!" sense. In a way professors are the aristocracy of the blog world since they do get paid for their ideas.Which is why I was surprised and impressed by how Bill Luse has underplayed his credentials. Sneaky, he is. Wouldn't want to play him in golf either.
