Latest Manifestation of the Digital Sublime

I can’t help but feel that we’re living in an interesting time for media. While blogs have proved that they’re here to stay, it’s still a bit of a free-for-all as bloggers, the public, and the mavens of established media decide how to use them. Blogging software and HTML code provide new ways to organize words and pictures, and we’re sill very much, well, playing with them. “Play” is the right word; so is “explore.” It feels like a frontier town out here sometimes, or the early days of a gold rush.

It’s always a pleasure to run across another novel scheme for dealing with the gobs of information that seem to be the most abundant substance in this modern world of ours. The latest one such I’ve found is the Blogs With A Face project, which claims to be the “World’s Largest Collage of Bloggers.”

Blogs With A Face = a new take on the biggest blogroll imaginable, with clickable thumbs of about a kermillion bloggers’ faces (and nothing else). It takes as long to load as you might expect, but is worth a look. And if you maintain a site, of course, it appears that they have space for more bloggy visages.
