Several readers sent us notice of an article in the Wall Street Journal in advance of the tenth anniversary of the blog
(by some definitions and accounts). The Ur-blogger in this version of history was Jorn Barger and the blog was Robot Wisdom
. Barger wrote, "I decided to start my own webpage logging the best stuff." The Journal article has statements from a baker's dozen of bloggers and/or blogwatchers and a handful of videos of bloggers talking about how and why they do what they do.
