This article on the BBC News: Technology website (which is strangely attributed to no one…) is rather interesting. Besides the fact that Technorati’s data has been notoriously unreliable, it’s interesting that this analyst firm, Gartner, thinks blogging will peak in 2007.
It seems to me that as the population ages, the number of bloggers will naturally increase, because people don’t seem to stop blogging because they hit a certain age, but they certainly do start blogging as they get old enough. So it’s interesting to think that
“most people who would ever start a web blog had already done so.”
But hey…who am I to disagree with mysterious analysts…
