Definizione di Blog

The word blog (or weblog) is a recent expression, coined by Jorn Barger in 1997, which derives from the contraction of the words Web and Log. In its basic form, a weblog is an on-line diary or personal journal organised in chronological order, but if it uses different elements like still images, video or audio, we talk about a photoblog, videoblog or audioblog. One of the first definitions of a weblog, was given by the same Jorn Barger, Weblog Guru, who defines it as a different form of personal Web page, as a "log of the web": "A weblog (sometimes called a blog or a newspage or a filter) is a web page where a weblogger (sometimes called a blogger, or a pre-surfer) 'logs' all the other webpages he finds interesting."
