number of people reading Internet blogs on the top 10 U.S. newspaper sites more than tripled in December for a year ago, and that they accounted for a larger percentage of overall traffic to those sites.

Surprise surprise, I'm not real surprised by this news, and I think it's quite indicative of the acceptance of "socialization" that we're seeing across the media landscape. Or would that be "Diggification?"
In any case, I love going to the NYTimes site and seeing the most emailed, blogged and searched sites. At the end of the day, that's just one more view into the news landscape. Doesn't mean I don't still value the editorial judgment of the NY Times' editors. But, it's interesting to me to see what other readers are interested in.
