It does show how if you are in the right place at the right time you can catch the attention of a huge global audience. Without wishing to enter into a discussion of the rights and wrongs of the issue (You might try Harry's Place, Pickled Politics and Altmuslim.com if you want to explore the issues) it underlines the value of original comment in blog posts. I think in the early days blogs many originating in the US, were often dominated by comment based on big media reports: US newspapers have much less of it than their British counterparts so there was a natural appetite for that kind of material. But now there seems to be a growing trend that its original reporting that really excites the blogosphere and that I think is a good thing.
