Eternal September, Mark 2

When AOL's millions start blogging, we'll have the second wave of what a friend called Eternal September.When AOL first opened its Usenet gateways almost 10 years ago (Sept. 1994, I believe it was), the veterans of the Net sighed endlessly. Every fall, a rush of freshmen with newly minted Internet accounts would start posting idiocy and RTFM questions on Usenet. My friend commented that with AOL, it was Eternal September -- you never exhausted the newbie community. Blogging is a different animal as it's not per se distributed, but Google may make that a different issue than it would have been three or four years ago.
