Blog Burst and coverage in newspapers

P-G coverage of a blogging trend.
Tech Briefly: 5/6/06 The Web sites of dozens of newspapers are starting to feature outside blog postings on travel, health and other topics in a further blurring of the line separating traditional and new media.

The travel section of the San Francisco Chronicle's site, for instance, had a box in the middle Wednesday with such posts as 'The Intricate Architecture of Barcelona' from the RealTravel blog.

The posts supplement the Web journals, or blogs, maintained by the newspapers' staffs and come from Pluck Corp.'s new BlogBurst service, which collects postings from about 1,000 blogs and distributes them to newspapers, mostly for online use.
