The question of whether or not publications like this are journalism got a little bit more complicated—and interesting—this weekend. Dr. David Weinberger is blogging in near-real-time from the Dean campaign trail. Continuing the spirit and form established by Boys on the Bus and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72, Weinberger is publishing a first-person account of his experience in serial bursts. And it’s compelling stuff.
I’m still betting on Dean making a hard right turn to the center, but his campaign clearly gets the net (Weinberger’s account is cross-published on the Dean campaign weblog).
