Fanning a flamer’s fireblogging

by Meredith Farkas on 4/29/2005 with 7 comments

Why do people like Michael Gorman and Blaise Cronin (and note that I will not link to any of their articles, but you can find critiques at Free Range Librarian and Pattern Recognition) write these controversial rants about blogs and bloggers?
