Rhetoric, Community, and Culture of Weblogs

The Spirit of Paulo Freire in Blogland: Struggling for a Knowledge-Log Revolution is a very good article written by independent researcher, Christine Boese.

She discusses weblogs and klogs (knowledge blogs) as a notable social phenomenon.
By applying some of the key concepts of The pedagogy of the oppressed to analyse Main stream Media Institutions like Time and CNN she makes an original exploration on digital and online dialog (through the blog technology) as sites of contestation and resistance.

I recommend not only this article but most of the others in the new publication Into the Blogosphere
