It seems to me that what blogs are doing is opening up discussion. That is blogs are more like being in a study room or faculty lounge when a good discussion is going on. But I don't think it is typically like papers. Rather the format is much more like regular talk (with all the misspeaking we regularly do)

I think that's what's refreshing. That one can find short and pithy comments. Of course bloggers don't always get the short and pithy part down. Partially because brevity usually takes a lot of work. When I write a paper it usually is about 3x as big as the final paper will be. Most of my editing and rewriting is putting my thoughts in a more simple form. But of course in a blog I can't do that. (Well, at least not with the time I have)
