Girls Have Cooties!
"The average blogger is a 14-year-old girl writing about her cat," said Alexander Halavais, an assistant professor of interactive communications at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
Not only should blogging be taken lightly because "the young" and the "chatty" do it so their "friends" can read about their latest flossing but also because it's girlish, something only a girl would do, the lowest of the low. (Imagine what his classes are like.)
The whole article brushes aside anything but vanity and diary blogs and assumes that few bloggers have ideas larger than their belly buttons, that there is no impact, that no one is "out to change the world" (from Amanda Lenhart who directed the survey for The Pew Internet & American Life Project).
