What Makes a Weblog a Weblog?

Perhaps no one knows the answer better than Dave Winer, pioneering technologist and manufacturer of one of the first and most popular blogging softwares. Winer is now on sabbatical as a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, where he is evangelizing Webblogs and theorizing their impact upon society. He’s also trying to define just exactly what is a Weblog..

Meanwhile, writer Mark Fraunfelder this week writes in TheFeature (a wireless content strategies site that is funded by Nokia) about Moblogging and Audblogging. Mobloggers are people who use mobile phones, not personal computers, to create text blogs. Audbloggers use mobile phones to create blogs containing not text but audio actualities of events (for example, providing audio coverage of a news event). Expect to see vidblogs soon.
