Tech Blogging

This is an interesting piece on Techmeme, the news aggregator for technology which I frequent almost as much as I do Memeorandum, and its founder Gabe Rivera.

What’s driving the growth of reporting on technology?  The blogs:

“In technology coverage, what happened was blogging,” [Rivera] said. “And the best bloggers got readers, which encouraged more bloggers to emulate them. And it just added pressure for everyone to become better and faster. A lot of the characteristics of blogs made their way into more established media sites, even as some of the larger blogs became more like mainstream media. And mainstream media got a lot more bloggier.”
