Bloggers, Bloggers Everywhere

For those of you interested in the phenomenon of blogging, two new books promise to give you the inside scoop:

Glen Reynolds of is coming out with his book, Army of Davids, How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths, in about a month.

Here’s a quote:

"Glenn Reynolds has written an essential book for understanding how technology and markets are creating a bottom-up shift in power to ordinary people that is changing business, government, and our world. Packed with fresh ideas and adorned with graceful prose, An Army of Davids is a masterpiece.” – Joe Trippi

Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (of the liberal blog Daily Kos) have written: Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Politics.  This one is brand new.

Here’s a quote:

“No one is spared in this lively, pointed book—and that makes it a lot of fun. Democrats should read Crashing the Gate to find their way out of the political wilderness. Republicans should read it to understand what their opponents might do if they get smart.” — Larry J. Sabato

I plan on reading both, and will give you my thoughts in the future…
