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.

In the end, users are most likely drawn to sites for the quality and trustworthiness of the material presented."
