Looking Around

So it turns out my impression that the blogosphere is populated by white male Americans is old news (I specialize in old news). Here's Steven Levy's Newsweek column from a couple of weeks ago on the subject. But the "lack" of diverse bloggers may be like the "lack" of bus riders in Los Angeles: in fact there are thousands, just nobody I know. I enter the blogosphere from some link of which I'm already aware, and move to linked blogs from there, feeling like I am cruising the entire web but I'm actually moving in tight little circles. But I've only been at this a couple of weeks--what's Big Media's excuse?
