Weblogs für alle an Bibliotheken in Minnesota

RSS4Lib weist auf die Zwischenbilanz des ungewöhnlichen Weblog-Programms UThink der University of Minnesota Libraries hin (Netbib über UThink):

(The) University of Minnesota library offers everyone in the University community a weblog of their own. UThink has been around just over a year — they celebrated the service’s first birthday on April 12, 2005 — and has an impressive level of use:
As of [12 April 2005] UThink has 1,231 individual blogs, 2,200 registered blog authors, 17,654 individual entries, and 12,486 comments to those entries….

Some of you may be stunned by this data, but it shouldn’t be that surprising given that about 66% of blogs are abandoned in the „blogosphere“ at large. UThink, it seems, is no exception.
