Blog Backs

I've been watching this trend of linking user content/opinions with traditional media for awhile now ... and every once in a while I find a surprise for myself. My blog's currently listed first in the Blog Back feature on the USN&WR site.

I often wonder if people notice this blending now or if they will be able to distinguish the difference as it meshes more in the future? Right or wrong, it's a great opportunity for librarians to take notice and figure out how their information role may be changing as journalism, like all buiness models affected by the new web, transforms itself. What are your thoughts?

BTW: There's my latest post circled in green ...

PS: I just noticed the Shifted Librarian is currently listed in Blog Back too! Read Jenny's post, it's excellent!
