NOW ALL WE NEED IS A PAUL MORLEY BLOG: Apparently, Google are mulling chasing blogs off to a separate part of the search engine because we're 'distorting' the results of searches. This seems a little bit harsh - sure there are some blogs which are little more than link regeneration, but most of them contain original material that shouldn't be treated as invalid simply because it's expressed through a rolling service rather than created in an HTML laboratory somewhere. It almost starts to suggest a world where Google thinks that web pages are only worth it if they've been constructed by official sources. Some blogs, however, are written by distinguished men of letters. Such as the great Ian Penman, who's got online and is spewing out his thoughts on a regular basis.
