But that is like saying a car is a means of transportation featuring four wheels.

I was only a couple of pages into Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation that's Changing Your World before i found myself being annoyed by Hugh Hewitt's voice (even though i couldn't quite identify what it was~and not his actual voice, mind you, this wasn't an audio book~something just wasn't vibing right). I hadn't heard of Hugh Hewitt before i read this book so i didn't know he was Mr. Conservative Right, but i did slog through the book anway. He sees the blogosphere as part of the "N ...more

Blog chronicles the history of the blogosphere and pushes for its expansion. It argues that we are in the midst of a reformation, a democratization of information, very much like the one caused by the invention of the printing press. Hewitt tells his readers who he believes are the Martin Luthers of our day and warns us to join them or be left behind.

Blog by Hugh Hewitt is an informed, educational, and compelling take on the new prominence of blogs and social media in today's business and politics. Hewitt clearly knows what he's talking about, and he does a remarkable job of weaving together personal experience, real-world examples, and a little bit of extrapolation to make a strong case for everyone to start a blog, and start one now.

This book was much like blogs themselves--hastily researched and quickly written. When it is a blog, this is ok because you can easily click to the next thing and it didn't cost you a dime. When it is a book, it suggests something about dismal about the publishing world. Any book about blogs was bound to be outdated by the time it was published, so I can forgive Hugh Hewitt that.

Not really my genre to begin with, and definitely more dramatic than suits my fancy. I guess technology prophets need to sound alarmist in order to increase the volume of their system alert. Blogs are great, sure. But blogs are not yet "the information reformation that's changing [my:] world."

Recommends it for: bloggers
Although this book has a definite political agenda, it is nevertheless a fascinating look at the "everybody's a journalist" phenomenon.I cited it extensively in a paper I wrote on MARC cataloging of political blogs.

A great history of blogging and a good view on how blogging can impact the masses. Good ideas on marketing your blog and creating a blog that people want to read.

Surely outdated now, it was trailblazing in its time for discussing and predicting the power of blogging and the long tail of social media.
