I hate the term ‘A-List Bloggers’ – it makes me think of high school cliques and a caste system. A democratizing media will have clouds and clusters but ‘power brokers’? Of course I probably wouldn’t hate it if I was one of the A-listers. I didn’t get in on the ground floor – and don’t have the wherewithal to read that many blogs a day… I’d rather be an A-list blogger in my own industry instead of just in the blogosphere in general. I don’t think I’ve heard anybody refer to themselves as an A-List Blogger in a very long time.
Why don’t they just add ‘tree-hugging, Howard-Dean-reminiscing, hybrid-engine champions’ while they’re at it? Power brokers are too busy brokering power to take time and write all about it.
