Can blogs compete?

What better way to open up a blog than with a discussion of blogs?

The Economist has an interesting article up on the future on the blog and its role vs. mainstream media.

The Guardian also has some interesting stuff to say about blogging and journalism.

My own opinion is that bloggerrs will over estimate themselves and their importance and relevance and that in turn the traditional journalists will underestimate the blogging community and the potential for a “different” brand of journalism.

I do not believe that the mainstream media will use blogs as anything other than a way to augment their cash flow and that bloggers will have a hard time doing much true journalism.

I do see huge potential as blogs being a very good way to editorialize, but in the end that may be it.
