Air Force discovers blogs

Kyle Spector of ForeignPolicy's FP Passport found this gem:US Air Force discovers blogs: "In an effort to fight the war on terror, the Air Force is putting up $450,000 for a three year study of...blogs. One scientist involved in the project is already proving, with this revelation, that he is worth the money:Blog entries have a different structure,' Ulicny said. 'They are typically short and are about something external to the blog posting itself, such as a news event. It's not uncommon for a blogger to simply state, 'I can't believe this happened,' and then link to a news story.'

Spector and I are in strong agreement: we can't believe this happened.
