Skeptical about blogging?

This from the article: "How to Bring Blogging to Life" by Karl Kurtz in the latest edition of State Legislatures:

"Courtesy of Technorati: More than 100,000 new blogs are created daily, but only 50 percent of new bloggers are still posting three months later.

Still skeptical about the viability of this new medium? Ponder this New York Times editorial from 1939 (sorry no link), "The problem with television is that people must sit and keep their eyes glued to the screen; the average American family hasn't got time for it. Therefore, the showmen are convinced that for this reason, if no other, television will never be a serious competitor of (radio) broadcasting."
