“Fanzines Beget Blogs,” Roger Ebert theorized in his May 4 post to the Chicago Sun-Times blog.
This has already been widely reported by the fannish component of the blogosphere. When Moshe Feder sent me the pointed he added the comment:
Great to have someone of Roger’s national reputation explain this fact in such a venue. Too bad the article goes off on that Clarke tangent after the second paragraph. The Clarke stuff is OK in its own right, but there’s a lot more he could have said about his main point that would have been more informative to his readership.

I’ve written a fair amount about Roger, myself, and that doesn’t include all the posts where I didn’t mention his last name.
