I have anything brilliant to add.

Do you see evidence of that?  Besides the four
panelists here?  My sense of that is yes, it's true,
but I'm not sure what I'm basing that on.

Yes, agreed.  The reason I make that point- and maybe
it's not necessary to make the point anymore, but I'm
not sure- is that at one time one could count on many
visitors who did not know the difference between a web
site and a weblog, who didn't understand that weblogs,
typically, change more often than web sites.
