  16. 16. Conversation: • Blogging Blogs started around 1994 but did not attract main stream attention because these largely diaristic practices that grew out of homepage culture did not show much commercial potential. (video excerpts from: Homepage) http://old.d‐word.com/homepage/index.html Blogware like Geocities and Lycos developed that hosted blogs (diaries, photos, audio, political commentary). Today it is easier than ever to create a blog (Blogger, Moveable Type). Blogs started as experiments and where taken over by euphoria in the early 1990s. After about 2003 they were used by more and more people. Today there are about one hundred million blogs. They offer a mix of public and private voice to the public. “Massification” of Voice No one single weblog changes what the NYT may cover. In their totality, however, blogs do influence what traditional mass media report. The world of blogs does not replace traditional mass media but it does influence them.
