Revkin's Dot Earth: The First Pulitzer Prize for Blogging?
Blogs are already a central feature of mainstream news sites and their importance is only likely to grow. Just take a scan at the reporting, analysis, and commentary available at NYTimes.com and WashingtonPost.com.
So the question is...how long will it be until the Pulitzer prize committee recognizes the outstanding contributions of this major new outlet for "print" journalism?
And let me help begin the debate over inaugural winners. If there is a leading candidate, it's Andrew Revkin's work at the NY Times' DotEarth. Supported by a Guggenheim Fellowship, Revkin launched the blog last year and it has quickly become the top site for coverage, analysis, and commentary on climate change.
A New Media Pulitzer for coverage of the world's biggest looming threat? Sounds like a nice start to the future of the award.

Arranged marriages and Western romantic practices have more in common than we might think.
In his book In Praise of Love (2009), the French communist philosopher Alain Badiou attacks the notion of 'risk-free love', which he sees written in the commercial language of dating services that promise their customers 'love, without falling in love'.
