Blogito Redux

2004-12-15

Daniel Drezner and Henry Farrell's article Web of Influence is quite a comprehensive exploration of the blogosphere and its influence on real life. Unfortunately, the heading for the penultimate section is "blogo ergo sum" rather than "blogito ergo sum". Aside from the latter's Cartesian overtones and the fact that I coined the phrase, a simple GoogleFight shows that "blogito ergo sum" is the preferred form. Perhaps we'll need to have the keepers of Modern Latin adjudicate this dispute... :-)

(Update: Mr. Drezner reminds me that article titles and section headings are often written by the publication's editorial staff, so the target of my nit is properly not the authors in this instance. Mea culpa.)
