      Hi,

      I totally agree with you. My words, that you cite is the attitude of my
      paper's chief and even university, because when student writes a
      scientific work, he must use, well, let's say the mainstream media and
      (or) scientific literature . In this case, as I've been searching for
      history events in video blogging, I haven't found any (except Jay
      Dedman's) "trusty" sources, that I could use like: "one author says,
      that video blogging started that way, that year, etc.", "second author
      says, that video blogging started absolutely not like that, like said
      first author" - that's called information sources analysis (of
      literature/journal's/posts). In this case, I just cannot compare, cite
      "forum posts" and put them in bibliography list, which is very
      formal...For me, as student and citizen, it is no difference: is it
      mainstream or not. In mainstream I can hear "the official side" of the
      fact/topic, and in the blog I can find the "backstage" of the same
      fact/topic, and the information I find on the blog, is up to me - to
      trust or not (search for more info, etc.).

      However, tomorrow, I'm going to meet my chief, and we will discuss about
      that, and the results of "trustworthy and not sources" I will write
      here...Thanks for posting !
