I feel that RSS is actually the tool that gave blogs parity with bulletin boards, not something that put them over the top. The beauty of newsgroups was that it was easy to update content - like blogs vs. more traditional homepages, and that one knew how to find that updated content -- like RSS instead of going through a long bookmark list. What the newsgroups did not provide, IMO, is that richness of personal expression that blogs let you have. You did not know anything about the author. You could not easily see their other postings to other newsgroups, etc, etc. That is just fine in some situations. Bulletin boards/forums at photo.net are an amazing collection of Photographic knowledge that would be hard to replicate in a different form. In fact, any Q&A on a massive scale still cannot occur within a blog continuum, but goes on happily in newsgroups. The reason BB's were not considered a democraticizing tool is because of their Q&a structure that gives the same voice to everyone. For blogs, the voice of the author is pre-eminent. S/he may or may not allow comments, but in the end it is the author's rant that readers come for. Because a specific voice is heard, and the record of the author is easier to establish, traditional media feels more comfortable quoting blogs than BBs.

Nice post. Through the beauty of RSS, I will post it on the Mediaburn weblog.

Unfortunately, the RSS format has been under fire for the past few week. There is a possibility that it may be marginalized by a proposed format called "Echo".

RSS has achieved a great deal, as you have written. I'm letting bloggers know about the possibility that "Echo" can possibly mess with a good thing. It may be an anti-democratic force. Not for certain - but there is the possibility. Bloggers should be aware of the risks inherent in "Echo".

This makes it possible for someone like me was a new source mentioned in the mainstream media. So from this point of Lessig, due to the architecture of modern blog tools, limitations on billboards removed.
