While listening, 62:20 minutes into to the 81:37 minutes programme (sea_20070623.mp3, 37.4 Mb) I thought that they answered their own questions. There is also a certain amount of cringe factor and naivety. 150 visitors/day – wow!
But in answer to the initial programme questions. After waking up to the news on the radio, I check the blogosphere FIRST. Then if I have anytime left over, I may listen to what organisations choose to programme and broadcast, for example, ABC’s Radio National. But then I follow this up with further research – often on the internet.
Was it Tim Berners-Lee that said every blog has at least 15 readers or subscribers?
I’m now beginning to think about subjects that I know something about. Are they similarly being misinterpreted and or presented?
Also, from Berners-Lee on the read/write web:
“A good blogger when he says that something’s happened will have a point to back, and there’s a certain ethos within the blogging community, you always point to your source, you point all the way back to the original article.”
