Are blogs a fad?


Whenever I hear this question (or someone turning this question into a statement) I'm always reminded of this quote from Only the Paranoid Survive by Andrew Grove:




"Is the internet a big deal? Or is it an over-hyped fad?


I think it is a big deal.  I think anything that can affect industries whose total revenue base is many hundreds of billions of dollars is a big deal."




I wonder how Andy would answer this question about blogs -- I'm guessing the answer would be exactly the same.

I just changed jobs and my livelihood is now tied directly to a leading blog. So I'm going to go with not a fad ;)
