Newsmashing - The new technique that will change blogging forever. By Paul Boutin

Mr. Boutin seems confident that newsmashing will take off. I'm not so sure. The technique requires software, extra overhead which normally isn't needed for blogging. Additionally, instead of a nice, coherent piece which properly quotes sections from the web or other blogs to support or critique an original post, this more graphical approach seems more confusing and cluttered. It fits with our powerpoint generation but is that a good thing? Don't get me wrong, I'm used to seeing this on my work when I print it out but do I really want to have regular fare of this on the web? I won't. For others, time will tell.
