Blogosphere a Self-correcting System


checks and verifications in the blogosphere Posted by Hello



We are individual units

within a self-correcting

blogospheric system.


(1.) blogger makes assertion

(2.) other bloggers check the facts

(3.) combined time and effort
of multitudes of bloggers with
multiple computers results in:

substantiating or contradicting
information

(4.) acceptance or rejection
by blogosphere of
blogger's assertion

(5.) boost or downgrading
of blogger credibility
based on assertion
veracity

(6.) cumulative blogger
credibility is increased
or decreased

(7.) longevity of blogger
influence is increased
or diminished


Blogs self-correct at higher speeds
than other media can.

There could be thousands or millions
of bloggers doing the fact-checking.
