Ben Wolfson:

"If a serious case for blog progenitorship can be made for Vicomte de Launay, surely an almost equally serious case can be made for Georg Lichtenberg's The Waste Books (regardless that they were published posthumously), or Yoshida Kenko's Tsurezuregusa. I assume someone's pointed out robotwisdom to you if you didn't already know it; the first blog and rather different from most current ones. Though Jorn Barger coined "weblog", his probably wasn't really the first of its kind. Apparently in the early Mosaic days Marc Andreessen had an updated list of what was new on the web, which is basically the same format Jorn used.

No one, to my knowledge, has ever taken CMJ seriously at the radio station I used to work at."
