Microsoft flip-flop may signal blog clog

Paul Festa: As Web logs gain in popularity, critics warn that they are increasingly becoming the Internet's new bandwidth hog. The issue has been in the spotlight for much of this month, following a decision by Microsoft to abbreviate developer blogs both on its Web site and in syndication, citing a bandwidth crunch.

Randy: In the end, Sara Williams admitted that "RSS traffic is neglible compared to all the traffic generated." Kinda puts a damper on Paul's article. But had he listened, those who knew better were saying that Scoble was simply crying wolf.
