Can Amazon catalog the blogs?

Stephen Baker

Dave Pollard calls on Amazon to bring order to the blog world--and readership to little-known blogs. In one of four recommendations, he says that Amazon is perfectly placed to catalog the blogs, and tie them into its ratings and reviews programs.

Another point Pollard makes. Bloggers often have two circles of contacts: People they know in person, and those who visit their blogs. Oddly enough, he says, there's very little overlap. I've noticed that.

The largest growth -- and soon to be gross -- market for which blogs are a purely sustaining innovation (in Christensen-speak) is customized education and career services.

Going forward, then, it will be the CECS providers that set the pace of innovation in blogging.

IMHO :-)

See Landof.OpportuniTV.com for details (that, as it happens, are Amazon.com-approved).

it would be great to have Amazon joining the blogosphere, that's for sure. It could open new exciting doors to "not so read" bloggers :)

A community of bloggers can be stronger than the local friends at times. Bloggers often share one or two common aspects of your life, and there is a lot of intensity drawn into it.

Local acquaintances see many more aspects of you, so the focus of their friendship is wider and probably less passionate.

For sure, nothing can replace your best "local" friend :)
