Scott Rosenberg on the history of blogging

Jun 29 2009 Published by under blogging, science books, social media

Simon Owens interviews Scott Rosenberg over at Bloggasm.

Lately, there has been no shortage of journalists that have announced- usually as a form of link bait -- the "death of blogging" as social news and microblogging continue to grow in market share, but Rosenberg's book is a tribute to the medium's still-immense power as we approach the end of the decade. He noted that long before Twitter existed there were bloggers that were writing Twitter-like posts, so the launch of the microblogging site merely carved out a niche for those kinds of bloggers, leaving the traditional blogging platform for more long-form writers.

Rosenberg is the author of the upcoming Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What It's Becoming, and Why It Matters.
