Opinion regarding recent blog events and collisions:: As follows:: I don't think bloggers should be treated as a lynch mob. I also don't think bloggers should act like a lynch mob. Blogs can be a destructive or creative force. They should be a truthful force. They should aspire to elevate discourse and conversation, not debase it. Be critical, but want to make things better. A petty war between old and new media will serve nobody and bring down both houses. We want a better media, big and small. For that, we need respect and cooperation. Stop fighting. Start talking.

Excellent comment. I have to quote this on the future.
This is just the beginning, and (i think this is definitely the year of "real" Bloggers interaction with mainstream media.
What next?... who knows. But we have to protect this tool. "Stop fighting. Start talking."
