Impact of blogging

The Observer runs another of the stories about bloggers impacting on"mainstream" writers, this time fears for the future of "critics". These are amusing little stories, but as far as I can see informed opinion will always have a role while newspapers continue to survive. That is perhpas the bigger challenge as we have entered the blackberry/ipod age.
In spite of the depth and breath of material accessible via the web there remains something reassuring about picking up a newspaper and happily skimming/reading at will. It is also convenient to carry round and disposed of (recycled of course) at moment of choosing.
