How important are Blogs for you?   [Edit]

Survey period: 19 Sep 2005 to 25 Sep 2005

They're everywhere, and in many cases have taken over from traditional news as the place to read about - and announce - important information. But do you use them? (Suggested by matthias s.)

Blogs seem to be distributed forums, one forum to a person. The consolidation for searching and pear review in forums makes the postings easier to find and more reliable than blogs.

Some blogs from recognized experts are useful but no more than magazine columns. Picking the good, consistent blogs is more difficult than reading established industry magazines.

So, there's not much harm done except that information is more dispersed, harder to find, and harder to judge than with forums and magazines.
