Blog of the Year

Powerline is blog of the year according to Time magazine. That's interesting, perhaps I should read the story. Oops. Turns out I am not allowed access to the story unless I fork over some cash.

Beyond the irony that a story about Blog of the Year cannot be accessed in the blogosphere except by those people willing to take out their credit cards, it seems financially counterproductive to deny free access. About a million blogs would link to the story if it were available, traffic at Time's site would be heavy, and Time could charge its advertisers quite a bit for space on that particular page. But heck, what do I know.
