a whole climate of opinion

When Google launched their blogsearch service recently, I was amazed to find that a post of mine about the murder of Robert McCartney was the first result turned up by a search against his name. It is still number four this morning.

I don't quite know what to make of this, but I have an inchoate intuition that the sprawl of weblogs, comments, trackbacks, blog search and tagging tools is evolving - in parallel to the mainstream media - into "a whole climate of opinion under whom we conduct our different lives" and that it is good to contribute to it in any small way.
