  1. Actually, I’ve been thinking a bit about this in the context of military planning and intelligence analysis. Even those relatively insular groups possess a wide variety of experience and skills. The blogosphere is infinitely vast (at least compared with the military and intelligence communities) and contains a correspondingly greater abundance of expertise. The trick is registering, validating, and making use of the information one gathers about people without violating the principle that persons should be left alone and anonymous unless they specifically seek notoriety.

  2. I take great exception to Mr. Klein’s comments. I’m usually in my dining room and nearly always wearing my sweats. Does mainstream media do no fact-checking these days?

    Comment by Dave Schuler — Monday, September 13, 2004 @ 9:41 pm

  3. Seriously though, Mr. Klein’s comments are simultaneously elitist and fatuous. The Constitution is mute on the credentials of journalists. There’s no more requirement for credentials to start a newspaper and become a real live journalist than there is for bloggers. All it takes is money.

    And the first Amendment to the Constitution is quite specific in prohibiting government from establishing credentials for expressing an opinion. And that’s all a blog is, really. Somebody expressing his or her opinion.

    The real issue is how much weight do you give whoever is expressing that opinion whether professional mainstream media journalist or blogger in his (or her) living room in his (or her) pajamas. Or less. And the more the mainstream media whine about joggers and the more they sound like Baghdad Bob the less weight they’ll be accorded. I say come on in, guys, the water’s fine!

  4. Make that “bloggers” rather than “joggers".

    Comment by Dave Schuler — Monday, September 13, 2004 @ 9:48 pm

  5. By “credentialiny” I meant noting their credentials (attorneys, profs, etc.)

    Comment by Steven Taylor — Tuesday, September 14, 2004 @ 9:20 am

  6. Are journalists credentialed in this fashion? A quick check of my newspaper suggests otherwise.

    Comment by Dave Schuler — Tuesday, September 14, 2004 @ 9:24 am

  7. No, they’re not. I think you are misundertanding my point. All I am saying is that it would be nice if there was a central list of the expertise of bloggers, as it would lend legitimacy. Indeed, the point is that bloggers often have far, far greater expertise than do the reporters who dismiss them.

    Comment by Steven Taylor — Tuesday, September 14, 2004 @ 9:26 am

  8. In other words: the point is that bloggers often have credentials that are ignored by the press.

    Comment by Steven Taylor — Tuesday, September 14, 2004 @ 9:30 am

  9. I’ve seen often in my life “phd"s selling things way outside the confines of where there phd was in. Or to be blunt, I think that a person with a phd in chemistry is probably about as qualified to comment on national defense as I am (read not). Credentials are a two-edged sword.

    Still, standing within a community outside the blogosphere is useful information to know.

  10. Note that based on my last comment, I am not qualified to comment on anything regarding spelling or grammar. :)
