THE NEW, NEW JOURNALISM: My Spintech essay on Blogging is up, which features quotes from interviews I conducted with Glenn Reynolds, Joanne Jacobs, Sgt. Stryker and Marshall McLuhan. Tracking down McLuhan, who’s been dead for twenty years, and getting his thoughts on the recent phenomenon of Web logs, wasn’t easy, but I managed to find him, and smoke out an interview. Nice guy–really love that clip-on tie!
The other folks I interviewed were incredibly helpful (not to mention very much alive), and I can’t thank them enough for their time.
