3L Epiphany has posted a lengthy list of legal weblogs that have been cited in law review articles. I learned from that list that my own blog was cited in one of the symposium articles recently published by Nexus: A Journal of Opinion. In his article "The Information Age, Again," Timothy Sandefur writes:
Sandefur, "The Information Age, Again," 11 Nexus J. Op. 5, 8-9 (2006) (footnotes omitted; hyperlinks added).
Not only does blogging harness the energies of widely dispersed expertise and energy, it also allows a more in-depth treatment of issues than the traditional media. This is due to the phenomenon of media fracturing .... There are specialized blogs on a remarkable variety of subjects: in my own business, I have frequent recourse to Legal Theory Blog, which covers developments in jurisprudence; How Appealing, which covers news from the nation’s appellate courts; The UCL Practitioner, which focuses on cases invoking California Business and Professions Code § 17200; and Eminent Domain Watch, which covers national eminent domain news. .... Audience specialization allows blog writers to expect a certain level of sophistication from the audience, and thus to expand on more sophisticated elements of a particular topic.
