Consolidation in the Blogosphere

This article will take approx 0 minutes to read.

I think we need to see a consolidation of content and advertising.

Everyone’s competing with each other because they don’t know how to give up their individual voice. What happens is we get a clamor for top Techmeme billing.

Instead, I’d like to see more federations of blogs, where content producers work hand in hand to protect the turf of the others while helping to funnel content opportunities to the best source for coverage within that federation. In the advertising arena, five sites at 150k pageviews each can’t get direct-sale advertising by themselves, but as a 750k pageview federation, the tide turns.

We need more consolidation. It’s survival of the fittest.

    It sounds good on paper, or video for this matter. Seems only natural that with so many players in a market, that it’s ripe for consolidation — history has proven that in many other industries.I think they key to success for any future “blogging conglomerates” will to make the right acquisitions and mergers and having an actual strategy in place before they just buy out the competition.

    Yeah, I think consolidation could be done in federations or alliances thanjust by pure acquisition. There’s probably several models lying around iffolks got creative.

    Hmm. Allied blogs. Allied relational databases. Those that federate will reap the soon coming benefits of the semantic web. The like minded will be able to form cohesive ontologies easier as well.

    I am listening to this and it makes perfect sense. Just a few thoughts though:1. It sounds like your talking about a new denomination….2. Or Unity ie…One world…(how do you get everyone on the same page?); Didn’t Lenin try that??3. There will always be someone in the organization who rages against the machine4. Always enjoy reading the post and great seeing you in MD
