In the first part of the 21st Century, the blogsphere now provides a voice to anyone with a ubiquitous Internet connection.
This opinion is usually:
- Individual (Few bloggers are a collection of individuals - this is mainly the domain of company blogs)
- Personal (Being specific to the: environment, needs, business, etc. of that individual)
- Traceable (Few bloggers are anonymous, unless they are participating in illicit activity. Even then, most of them can be traced back to an email/PC/IP address/etc.)
- Un-edited (very few bloggers have been censored - unless you live in China and use Microsoft Spaces as a blogging platform)
Instead of the silent majority, we now have the voice of the minority and it is definately not silent....
