Bloggere p forsiden av DagbladetGood heavens. That case about Apple suing the bloggers (or well, actually, are they bloggers? Isn’t it an online zine?) is the top story in Dagbladet right now.

    I like the “news for nerds after midnight” theory. I’ve noticed some front pages that would suggest there may be a policy of that kind at work, but the reason may also be that a certain type of people frequently gets the late night slot as editor of the online edition.

The spin I’ve been reading and hearing has been all about confidential sources and a special place for bloggers in the US Congress press gallery (there is already a blogger in teh Whitehouse daily briefings).
