Blogging news

Chalk another one up for bloggers. I discovered the breaking news this morning about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's resignation from the nation's highest court, not from TV or radio or even a traditional media Web site, but from a blog post.

I was taking a quick scan of the
ORblogs site, when I learned the news. The site features a summary of blog headlines, at it was the one from Persistent Illusion in which I learned the news.

Of course, as soon as I got to work, I turned to more conventional media sites to find out the details. We bloggers are cool and all, but on things like this, bloggers are mostly parroting back information they got elsewhere. I haven't completely abandoned conventional media for the blogosphere, but the blog universe is a lot more fun.
