It's been a big year for tech blogs, including a Britney Spears-style public meltdown (via Xconomy), a beautiful new startup from the ex-Engadget guys called The Verge and many other changeups and acquisitions (via Ben Parr's Entrepreneurial Musings). Which leads long-time VC blogger Jeremiah Owyang to declare that we're in the end of the golden age of tech blogging. "Kudos to him for sparking this conversation... feels like old times" writes Brian Solis. "While a chapter in the ongoing development of tech blogging is certainly coming to an end, in the overall story it's (finally) growing up...as it should." Um wait, sounds like an end? "He [JO] missed the point on this one, big time" writes Sarah Lacy - who's also rumored to be working on the next TechCrunch named PandoDaily. "Throughout the blogosphere the next generation is sprouting up, fired up with new ideas and resolve to build exciting new businesses that are different from wave #1 from the beginning." Longtime blogger Marshall Kirkpatrick also disagrees, and cites 3 things that will make tech blogging better.What do you think? Is this the end of an era for tech journalism?
