Weblogs, or "blogs" for short, have emerged in recent years as an important new tool for writing on the Web. They are gaining widespread use as personal Web sites and for topical sites about education, research, law, journalism and even presidential politics. What are weblogs? How are they different from ordinary home pages? Should I write a weblog? How do I get started? In this workshop, we will introduce weblogs and attempt to answer these questions. We'll present a simple definition, survey a variety of popular weblogs and weblog writing styles, help you set up your own MIT weblog at http://weblogs.mit.edu/ and write your first post, and demonstrate how a news aggregator works.
