The Power of the Blogosphere

This Maariv International article is yet another example of the power of the blogosphere, and of the consequences of not understanding, to pinch a bit from Laura Gurak's Cyberliteracy, the speed and reach of the internet.

The blurb at the beginning of the article sums it up nicely:

"Minutes after the internet diary ('blog') of MK Ehud Yatom went online, surfers began to post stinging comments about his role in the bus 300 affair * After several hours, the blog vanished. * Yatom: 'I have no idea what a “blog” is'. Evidently not."

Some background:
What happened on Bus 300? from the Jerusalem Post.
Oh, and just in case you're not up on Israeli government, "MK" is Member of Knesset: see the Knesset or Israeli Democracy.
