BAWS: Debating the role of blogs and a couple of items potentially worth reading

A couple days ago, I wrote about the Wall Street Journal Online article about the tenth anniversary of weblogs. I guess WSJ online is running a series or something, because today (via boingboing) I came across this, “The Good, the Bad, and the Web 2.0.” It’s a debate between a couple of folks who have books I ought to at least browse through:

“Andrew Keen, who wrote “The Cult of the Amateur,” argues the Web has become overwhelmed with useless noise. David Weinberger, author of “Everything is Miscellaneous,” argues that Web 2.0 tools let users filter out irrelevant (or inaccurate) information.”

I haven’t read the debate yet though….
