Blogs as agents

14th January 2003

Scott makes an interesting observation: Are blogs nothing more than agents for the internet?. A few years ago “intelligent agents” which knew your tastes and found content you would be interested in were the Next Big Thing™. Scott points out that by reading bloggers with similar tastes to us we are essentially getting the same service, with a nice human touch.
