Epater les blogeois!
So saith Professor Reynolds, after reading (via the BBC) about the coining of the neologism "blogeoisie" to describe the class of people who take part in this odd activity called blogging.
Of course, my handful of regular readers will have seen it here way back in April.
April 2002, that is.

Update, 10:30 pm: Reynolds has updated his original item with the following:
The Beeb appears to be behind the curve here: the term turns out to be over a year old. On the other hand, I don't remember seeing it before.
He's never been here; of course he doesn't remember seeing it.
And isn't it a kick in the patoot? When I finally get an Instalanche of sorts, it's to something that isn't even in the blog. When I switched over to MT last year, I entertained (briefly) the idea of incorporating the Vent items as a category within MT. Maybe I should have.Posted at 12:00 PM to Blogorrhea
