Content distribution network

In an email someone wrote about blogging, “Think of it as an alternative underground content distribution network.”
I sent the following reply, then thought to post it here to, for the record and the sake those of those who seek to understand, as I do, the “bigger picture” potential of the bloggers movement.
Blogrolling may spread faster and faster as the number of bloggers keep growing. I heard about the current pace that there are 40 new blogs coming online in every second. So blogrolling will be less and less underground but let’s hope it will remain alternative to the big-money media.
Blogrolling is only the very first stage towards a medium that can support massively global networks of conversations among bloggers. The next stages are already here: blog syndication via RSS and XML, community blogs (c-blogs), trackbacking, and topic maps.
