Blogs That Would Have Changed History

Dan Damon Dan Damon | 09:22 UK time, Wednesday, 16 April 2008

There is a feeling amongst some bloggers that they have become so important and influential, they are changing the course of history - forcing politicians to rethink, affecting the outcomes of elections and so on.

The bloggers that exposed the fake documents about George W. Bush's Vietnam era military career would probably claim that.

So I've been thinking: "how would blogging, with all its painstaking detective work and openness, have changed history?"

I'd be glad if you could come up with some points in history that might have been changed by blogging, and I'll try to construct the blogs that might have matched the moment.
