I was excited to hear (thanks Genie, thanks Dave) that MIT's Technology Review now has a weblog, featuring some of its excellent regular columnists as contributors. Fast Company and Ms. took the plunge earlier this year. By now you're already well aware of the kick Elizabeth Spiers has given New York Magazine, and let's not forget Doc's own Linux Journal.

"Turns out the Internet is a spectacular means of selling subscriptions," says Jeff Jarvis in his very worthwhile interview with Chris Lydon. This makes perfect sense to me. Another dead-on observation from Jeff: "The nichification of America that started with the remote control and the VCR now explodes." (And by no means does it stop with America, as the interview's account of Iranian weblogging momentum goes on to illustrate.)
