A commonplace of german politics

Lost in being beta

I had to read an article (german) in Spiegel online which stated that political blogs in germany do not have much impact at all. The german political blog were quite irrelevant compared to it’s American archetypes, the article said. This seems not only be true (if not even understated) but also seems a good indicator, as many things, like blogging itself, took a while to reach the Old World. So maybe it is worth giving it a try.

Unfortunally the authors have settled back a bit after finding a good title (“beta blocker”) and faded to trace a battle situation between the (already comparatively low amount of) german bloggers. A bit more information would have been nice. But we do not want to lose ourselves in a state of battle. So I better surrender!
