This is what weblogs can add to the world in terms of information: personal stories around events that make the news. David had met one of the astronauts who was on the space shuttle.
Some will call this “personal journalism”. I prefer to say that it is a testimony, and leave it at that. A small snippet of somebody’s subjective experience. Because some people blog, we get a chance to read such things, and the “news” becomes more human.
