In the past I’ve questioned why blogs appear to have had so little influence on the electronics media to date. Perhaps this is going to change in 2009 – this month I’ve already highlighted that Electronics Weekly has relaunched their startup blog, and launched a new open source blog. Now EE Publishers in South Africa have launched “The best from EE Publishers…” blog. Several of the posts link to audio content, making it a true multi-media platform. The broad portfolio of magazines (EngineerIT, Energize, Vector and PositionIT) mean that the blog is pretty broad-based, but perhaps we are seeing signs of blogs taking off in our industry.
