Social Aspects of the Blog

I am extremely interested in blogs and how they are changing the way we interact. For one thing, they have changed the technology behind the web, I would be interested to see how many people get their news via an RSS feed of some sort nowadays. Blogs are also changing social interactions however, as explained in this excellent post by Jonathon Delacour.

“Since 95 percent of people are imitators and only five percent initiators, people are persuaded more by the actions of others than by any proof we can offer.”

If you have any links to blogs and their social ramifications, let me know!
