Scoble: “I think the whole “are blogs journalism” question is silly. I’m not trying to replace the professionals here (although occassionally I’ll scoop the professionals because I hang around interesting people doing interesting things).
“For me, blogs are more about conversation than about “reporting.” Newspapers are almost never about conversation (except in the letters-to-the-editors page, or maybe Ann Landers kind of things).”

We’ve got a new feature for Manila today: Comment popup windows for News Items sites.
It works just like the comments feature for Radio UserLand: There’s a comment link next to each news item which, when clicked, opens a new window with a form for posting comments. A counter next to the comment link displays the number of comments that have been posted in response to each news item.
