With Pluck set to syndicate blog content to mainstream media, I was interviewed by Jennifer LeClaire for Tech News World about the infiltration of newspapers by blogs. Here’s what I said:

“It was inevitable that newspapers would recognize there are some really good writers and excellent journalists out here in the blogosphere,” President and blogger “B.L. Ochman told TechNewsWorld, “It makes sense to bring some of our content in — and getting paid for it is not a bad thing, either.”
“If there was any doubt that blogs are a part of the landscape this ought to make people realize that this is not going away. This is a new medium and it’s apparently valid enough to be seen alongside, and even inside, of old media. It’s the ‘if you can’t beat ’em join ’em’ philosophy.”
