The Blog Gap

Over on Newsday’s op-ed page, some guy has a piece on the failure of blogs, and Internet politicking, to catch on in New York the way they have nationally.

The bottom line is hardly a shock: New Yorkers blog about what they care about — mainly gossip and real estate — and politics isn’t at the top of that list.

The piece also offers an opportunity to dredge up my favorite bad prediction of the year, from an Andrew Rasiej-inspired piece in New York Magazine:

“We’ll help the Ferrer campaign build a micro-version of what we did for Dean,” said Ferrer tech consultant Vinay Bhagat.

Micro indeed.
