Admit it! If you are a blogger or a blog reader this thought has crossed your mind:
Authentication and expert judgment by bloggers (and their readers) is a significant but under-used force in improving journalistic quality.
Jay Manifold and Professor Cline offer a very elegant solution--Connections @ 411blog. The site aims to create a constructive, symbiotic relationship between blogging and traditional forms of journalism by amassing a database of subject-matter experts (SMEs) drawn from the best the blogosphere has to offer.
So, here's your chance to make your voice heard. Help out by submitting your favorite SME blogger/s for inclusion in the database. The listing criteria are here. [Please don't nominate me; I appreciate it, but my name has already been submitted.]
