The Death of Blogs?

From Ted Olsen at Christianity Today, a quote we could not resist:
As weblogs proliferated earlier this decade, Andy Warhol’s famous aphorism was modified to read, “In the future, everyone will be famous to 15 people.” Now it looks like Warhol was right after all: Thanks to widespread blog burnout, everyone will be famous to 15 people for 15 minutes.
Read the whole article, with its interesting observations.

It’s clear that blogging is not as trendy now as it was in the Spring of 2005 when we started the Marquette Warrior.

But there continue to be people with something to say, and people good at culling information from non-mainstream sources, and people not part of the mainstream media who can do good reporting. So if blogging isn’t trendy anymore, it’s not going to go away either.
