Blogs v. Other Sites: Getting Harder to Tell Them Apart

Reporting on David Sifry's latest "State of the Blogosphere," The NY Times points out,
"that it's becoming hard to tell what is a blog and what is mainstream media. Mr. Sifry calls Boing Boing a blog — and so it is. But it also does some original reporting, and has professional journalists on its staff. And oddly, Mr. Sifry calls Slashdot, a technology site with material created mostly by users, a mainstream site. Meanwhile, more and more mainstream media sites are blogging. In the end, users are most likely drawn to sites for the quality and trustworthiness of the material presented."
