Lee Gomes of WSJ followup on blogs.

Lee Gomes does a followup on Blogs today in the WSJ today where he answers some basic questions. I guess most people still don?t get what blogs are.
Q: What is the difference between a blog and a wiki?
A: A blog is typically created and controlled by a single person, and reflects that person?s opinions, taste, world view and the like. Readers can often post comments and responses to the blogger?s entries, but can?t make new entries themselves. A wiki page, by contrast, is usually designed to be an informational resource on a particular topic, often a technical one. In theory, anyone who goes to a wiki page has the ability to change anything on the page; the idea is that people can add information they have or correct errors or omissions made by others.
