In Brief

The growing practice of "Paleoblogging" offers a refreshing alternative to typical digital content.

Swissmiss points our attention to the growing practice of “Paleoblogging.” Paleobloggers search for meaningful material from the analog era and re-post what they find online.  It introduces “new” and undiscovered content and ideas into the digital media stream.

Snarkmarket explains:

as opposed to blogging about what’s in the New York Times or in your friends’ twitter feeds, is that this is stuff that would not enter into the conversation otherwise. You’re not just copying it from internet relay to internet relay, but genuinely scanning it, converting it from the physical and/or nonblogospheric universe into this universe of discourse, recirculating it into new channels of information and ultimately into new retinal images and neural paths.
