Blogs get people excited. Blogs disturb and worry people. Some people distrust them. Others see them as a star of a new information revolution. One thing’s for sure: they’re rocking the foundations of the media “, said Julien Pain. Anyway this book http://www.cyberjournalist.net/news/002934.php give us a basic informations about relative new kind communication ( blogs, blogging and bloggers)

These “online diaries” are even more varied than the mainstream media and it’s hard to know which of them is a news site, which a personal forum or one that does serious investigation or one that’s presenting junk evidence.It’s difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.

But blogging is a powerful tool of freedom of expression that has enthused millions of ordinary people. Passive consumers of information have become energetic participants in a new kind of journalism – what US blog pioneer Dan Gillmor calls “grassroots journalist” by the people, for the people.
