BBC Apologises As Dyke Quits

BBC News

The real story for me is how on top of this some bloggers were from the beginning. If you check out this post and this post from Instapundit, you can see commentary from some of them on today's events. And if you want an example of the spot-on work by bloggers before this story broke, check out this post by CMC'er Jeff Jarvis back in July, 2003.

And by the way, have you ever checked out Instapundit's hit totals? Even on a big day, we don't quite compete with him. That's an understatement, I know. Revise: Even in a big day, we don't quite compete with a given hour for Instapundit. That's also an understatement (he averages about 4,000 hits an hour). I think it's a fair goal for this site to one day have more hits in a year than Instapundit had last hour. That is one influential fella (for example, check out here how one mention of some obscure CD by Instapundit raised it's Amazon sales rank to 430).
