Jupiter Research discover weblog as a media tool

Planet Multimedia reports that Jupiter Research has decided to create weblogs for its analists. These Jupiter Research Analyst Weblogs unfortunately don't go with a news feed in RSS-XML. The current postings appear to be quite politically correct and not so much a personal point of view/opinion but a Jupiter point of view.

It will be interesting to see where this development will lead. In my opinion weblogs are a useful tool to record developments in a subject area. As such they could also be used more intensively in the university domain. If science is all about monitoring/investigating developments, the first logical step would be to log these developments. Having logged all kinds of events, a pattern may occur that may be the basis for further research/investigation.
