This brought tears to my eyes, and I know you will want to read it too, because it's our accomplishment together. Dana Blankenhorn, who has been a business journalist for over 25 years, says ... I kept rewriting and rewriting... it seems a little odd to write about it myself, so I'll just let you read it in his words on Moore's Lore, which covers the history of technology:
The most important blogger of our time is probably Pamela Jones of Groklaw. Groklaw is more a community than a blog (but so is DailyKos). Despite the extensive help her audience gives her, Jones still gives her beat rigid attention, tons of supporting materials, and she gives her enemies plenty of rope for hanging themselves so that, when she does speak her mind, she has both authority and supporters. . . .
One more important point. Jones is, by her actions, Exhibit A for why bloggers are journalists. She acts as a journalist in all things, which is meant as a compliment, her ethics are impeccable, and her work ethic is astounding. She is, without doubt, one of the best reporters on law in the country, if not the best. She has earned far more praise than I have the power to bestow.
So congratulations and thanks.
No, truly, thank *you*. I appreciate deeply what you wrote. And your timing is impeccable.
