Connected and Not Equal

Eric Norlin is blogging up a storm. One item worth pointing out is his praise of Clay Shirky's piece implying blogs are not egalitarian. Eric agrees: "I'm not sure why the uproar about this one -- cuz it dares assert that maybe blogs aren't so egalitarian?? of course they're not. they can't be. they're part of a network - networks, by their vary nature, develop "super-nodes" that conform to power law distributions."

more here and here. i've got some reading to do.... and I think I really like what Henry Copeland has to say (interesting take).
