According to Delo, a blog got nominated for the BBC Four Samuel Johnson Prize. Since the BBC was and is a strong supporter of the blog-based media, this comes as no surprise, but is still a very neat thing.
The blog, Baghdad Burning, which is a very old and known blog, is nominated in the non-fiction section.
Of course, one could argue the standards and rant about quality, but let`s forget all that for now and ponder about what could the victory of a blog mean for the world of literature. Probably not much, but still…any change is still a change.
