BloggerTribe

Eric writes, on his blog, that he's found himself recommending people for jobs whom he's only "met" by reading their blogs. He describes the process as a burgeoning tribal affiliation, enabled by the 'Net.

For me, I feel like the tribes are beginning to grow up much more around the little nodes and bubbles of the blogosphere, and they're becoming rapidly more important as us early-twenties bloggers own real sphere of influence grows in the meatspace.

10 years from now, I can see not being part of the community be a really detrimental thing for a job hunter.

    I'm an avid blog reader, but not a blogger myself. I used to feel like a part of it all, but as more and more blogs cease permitting comments I don't qualify as a member of the tribe. But who can blame bloggers for blocking comments with the flamers and agendaheads lining up to fill the comment areas with crap.
