Steve Rubel at Micro Persuasion flags Jeremy's Blachman's op-ed in the NYTimes today and wonders whether he's the first blogger to make it there.

Congrats to Blachman, but Rubel's distinction seems like a false one.

Those are just a couple of names I can think of. What may be different is it's a blogger writing about blogging. But with more people blogging, it's harder to see an us and them divide. Of course, what that means for blogging is still to be determined.
