Blogging continues to grow in new and fascinating ways. The New York Times had a good story yesterday about how the bloggers at Firedoglake have provided the most extensive coverage of the Scott Libby trial.
A few other odds and ends:
-- Seth Gitell, the astute former Boston Phoenix political reporter, had some kind words for Not for Nothing on his blog yesterday, saying, "Even though disgraced mayor, Buddy Cianci is still in federal prison, Rhode Island politics are still colorful. Ian captures the feel for it. I especially like his fusion of politics and food."
-- RI Future and Julian have the details on a big march planned tomorrow, in support of reopening the South Side Boys & Girls Club in Providence.
-- Blogging was the subject of a salon held at the Providence Athenaeum last Friday by Toni Pole, a research associate at Brown's Taubman Center. One of the most interesting things I learned was how a leading blog aggregator, the Truth Laid Bear, groups the best-read blogs by such categories as Supreme Beings, Mortal Humans, Playful Primates, and other, less-flattering names. One day, N4N, one day.
