    You'll forgive me if I don't do a happy dance because people got fired.

    Even though the blog guy does a little jig as he tells us layoffs at traditional media means BLOGS are the future?

    This just proves every form of alternative media goes mainstream eventually.

    Don't confuse our resident dicksnorts with real live people that have rent and bills to cover.

    I know, I know. But it's difficult not to smirk in saying meet the new media...same as the old media.

    Hm, are you basing that on the fact the page views for Gawker blogs have doubled in the past year?

    If blogs have been so overhyped, why are all the major metros dipping their toes in the blog water?

    Like it or not, blogs are a big part of the future of our biz.

    Blogs are a big part of the future, but they need substantial improvement.

    The mentality of just dumping unused blathering into a blog is not a good start.
