Redefining the Web
In many ways, blogs have redefined the Web. What people first took as a fad has become so ingrained in contemporary culture in a few short years that many folks who were certain it was all going to pass in a few months are left shaking their heads and wondering what happened.
There are at least several reasons for the success of blogs. First, the Web has always had a community spirit, and blogs help strengthen that spirit. Second, the technologies emerging from and being refined by blogging software are impressive. Finally, blogs offer as much entertainment and information to their cultivators as their visitors.
