Prophecy is pretty sweet. Just ask Princeton’s Bernard Lewis — guy has a hunch the Middle East will evaporate by Labor Day. If he’s right, people will call him the next Nostradamus. If he’s wrong … no one will notice.
So, in the same spirit of devil-may-care, we offer our own prediction: We hereby declare 2006-07 The Year of the College Blog. Not those whiny blogs with Dashboard lyrics and black-and-white photos of skinny girls looking out windows. We’re talking about blogs people will read instead of the student paper. Blogs you visit to get notes from the class you missed. Blogs with photos from the party you weren’t invited to. If all this happens, then maybe — just maybe — bloggers will become the new BMOCs.
