Hours after the tragic loss of the Spaceshuttle Columbia and 7 astronauts we see the proof of how fucked up the idea is to regard weblogs as a new form of journalism. Skimming through approx. 50 blogs it's obvious everybody gets their information from the same sources - CNN and NPR - and ruminates random parts from the NASA pressconference, making up some shit on the way. yes weblogs are faster than newspapers, but they are even less reliable.

Besides the point, i'm really sad about the tragedy, especially since it was a lifelong dream of mine to go on a space mission.
