Wired have launched their first in house blog with Bruce Sterling writing Beyond the Beyond. Not surprisingly they are using the Tripod Blog builder, from parent company Terra Lycos. Rather disappointingly Bruce has gone for a no comment model with this post “Note that there is NO COMMENTARY ALLOWED in my pristine, high-toned blog here. Why? Because you might be a spammer”. We think most would agree that the ability to comment is of fundamental importance to most bloggers and blog groupies, and the closed model adopted by Wired for their fist blog does not bide well for their future success in the medium.
