I wonder what percentage of the 26 thousand or so new blogs set-up today will be written under a pseudonym. Before the advent of phenomena such as the CEO blog, the use of a nickname was perhaps one of the unwritten conventions of pastime blogging. The issue is also pertinent to Niall's recent posting on 'character' blogs.

The announcement yesterday that all-round LA busybody Arianna Huffington is to launch a group blog which will compile the collected wisdom of her 300+ 'friends' is yet to be supported by the invention of a suitably ugly denomination for this kind of digital bedlam.
