Jay Rosen on NYTimes pay-per-view editorial page and on the power of bloggers in the world of MSM.

Colin McEnroe is teaching a blogging class. Among else, all his students are starting their own blogs and writing their first fresh opinions about Dooce, Kottke, dKos, BoingBoing and other famous blogs.

I'd like to boost them by sharing a little link-love - please go and post a comment encouraging their early blogging efforts. Here they are:
