Opinion: While Weblogs have grabbed the public’s attention mostly for their political revelations, their value as forums for collective knowledge is becoming known in other areas as well.

You know what? The above statement is, well, not insightful, but certainly a great starting point for a discussion on how easy-to-use software (and the lack of technical knowledge) can be used to expand knowledge and information-sharing. Because this is something we are particularly interested in (see: all previous articles on this topic), we went the whole nine yards and read the darn thing.

It’s pretty much a rehash of the yards of columns printed on this topic since Howard Dean launched his presidential campaign. Since it’s a tech publication, we would have guessed that the target audience was up on this whole topic. Oh yeah, the potential for blogging was mentioned prominently and discussed in detail. If the last paragraphs of a column can be considered prominent and detailed.

We may have to go back to bed and get up on the right side. Either that or find news that doesn’t make us cranky.
