9/11: Birth of the Blog

Wired News argues that 9/11 marked the “birth of the blog” Wired quotes social media consultant Matthew Yeomans:”Back in 2001, blogs were still very much the geek toy of the Slashdot set. (But) this collective tragedy demanded a forum to be shared by people all around the world who wanted to talk about what happened with anyone because it was the only way of making any sense of it. Were it to happen again, blogs and social networks would play an enormously cathartic role.”
