Apologies accepted. :) I've restored the McKinstry archive.


6,258 hits on the blog - in the two hours that the redirect was in place!

Flasher_T, there are not that many English language blogs on Estonia that.. .
I do read them cause it is worse. Rather than the news (agencies) stuff one gets to read on a daily base.
Since three years I am following the old versus new media controversery in Germany. One thing old media cannot do is "framed blogging". A term I've borrowed from Ross Mayfield who once created the homepage of the Estonian President. Other media turn away from a topic when it is not 'relevant' for their customers, or what they think that is relevant.
Anyway, a good blog will get a hype for a certain time, do not worry about the reason why.
