Consider how my own inputs have evolved over the past five years. At one time, my RSS intake was mostly feeds from conventional published sources, along with a few from individuals. Now it's the reverse. I subscribe to people more than to publications, and not because I don't value the information in those publications -- I do, very much -- but rather because, outside of the realms in which I'm closely involved, I can delegate the job of tracking primary sources to people whose interests and inclinations qualify them to do so.
The blog network is made of people. We are the nodes, actively filtering and retransmitting knowledge. Clearly this architecture can help manage the glut of information. More subtly, it can also help ensure that no vital inputs are suppressed because nobody has to rely on a single source.
