Blogging Through History

In this strange little cartoon-illustrated piece, CBS compares Publick Occurrences, 18th-century pamphlets, and 19th-century newspapers to modern blogs.

I don't know that I'm quite as optimistic about the "many voices" characterization of either the 18th century or the present as the CBS story. After all, no amount of friendly faux-crayon doodling will change the fact that this piece ran on CBS' national program, CBS Sunday Morning, which is broadcast over the public airwaves (for now), while this blog gets about 100 hits per day.
