What do Superblogs (like Boingboing, Huffington Post, or Tomorrow.sg) mean for the rest of us bloggers?
I see two immediate positive effects:
1) to popularize blogging to the masses
2) to highlight salient news & opinions
I also see two possibly weaker negative effects:
1) to polarize the blogosphere where the popular get more popular, the lesser known get even lesser known; works like in-groups or cliches
2) agenda setting through editorial gatekeeping
