The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

30 July 2004


The history of blogging is long and complex and filled with gaps of varying duration; I know I've thought about it and wondered, "Surely there must be something between Samuel Pepys in January 1660 and Glenn Reynolds in May 2001."

(Actually, I was blogging almost a year before the Professor, but my impact on the Blogosphere™ is essentially nil.)

But if I really wanted to identify a Missing Link (sorry), I could just bounce over to Coffeegrounds, where The Prop makes a good case for I. F. Stone as the first of our modern pundits — even if he did update only once a week.
