A couple of quite observations on Dave Winer. Firstly, Larry Lessig apparently wrote him a nice letter of recommendation that helped him get the job at Harvard. This was good of him, but given that giving Winer at the fellowship at Harvard was an extremely good idea, it was sensible.

Secondly, this interview with Dave in Newsweek is quite interesting.

Where’s blogging today?

We’re in a middle of an explosion right now. In the last few weeks, things have just gone crazy. It’s unbelievable to see what’s going on now.

Dave has mentioned this before. I've noticed a surge in hits in the last few weeks, as have other bloggers I have spoken too. It may be that blogging is becoming mainstream in the way that so many other things that we have been geeking away with over the years have become mainstream (not least the internet itself). I had dinner with Brian Micklethwait of Samizdata on Saturday. One of his thoughts is that we may see the mainstream media start mining the blogosphere fairly soon. All I can say is that if the Telegraph wants a telecommunications and technology correspondent, I am available.
