“and proceeded to question whether the Irish blogosphere had anything to offer the world.”
I think this is interesting. By and large, many of the blogs I read are completely divorced from any concept of nationality. If I’m reading a blog (usually about tech-related things), I don’t really know or need to know where the author is from.
And I think that’s important when saying that Kathy Foley must be seriously mistaken to make such a widely-swathed statement. How are Irish bloggers different from Canadian or Japanese bloggers, for example? I see no difference, and that’s the way it should be.
