I wrote a page here yesterday listing out my search results on how and what Universities around the World are doing catching up the wave of blogging.
I have listed a blog built by Oregon State University, this morning I have the Associate Director of Admissions calling in (credit to either technorati tags, feedburner feeds or Google/Yahoo search) saying that they have built their blog on WordPress (it could have been my oversight!). If we go back say 10~15 years how could we be corrected/updated so quickly? If I were researching on a topic, say on how people do certain things, I would have published a book wait until it get purchased and read by whoever who cares about what I have said then a letter via surface mail would be posted. By the time I read he/her comments the truth wouldn't matter any more.
