Bartlett on Blogs

Columnist Bruce Bartlett has a review of some of the better tax/economic centered blogs, including Daniel Drezner, Paul Caron, and Daniel Shaviro.

Bartlett concludes thusly about blogs:

 One disappointment this year in the blog area has been the weakness of some institutional blogs, those sponsored by newspapers and thinks tanks.  They are often unreadable and seldom linked to.  It confirms my view that blogs are necessarily idiosyncratic and need to be pretty independent in order to be successful.

 I believe that the Internet has barely scratched the surface in using blogs to analyze and disseminate information.  I look forward to their continued evolution.

As do I!
