Experiment on Scientific Communications

Well, today we can celebrate our first six months of existence in this blog. I'd like to take advantage of this fact to propose to all the gentle readers (as the dear old Dr. Isaac Asimov said) to leave a comment on what do you think about the utility of a blog as a method for scientific communication. I mean: there are the traditional ways (Conferences, Workshops, and so on), but the internet offers us many new possibilities, blogging being only one among others. Do you think that blogging can be useful? What do you think about other possibilites? Do you think that you could organize (for instance) a Conference using SecondLife? Do you think that webcasts (either from IEEE or other organizations) are useful or are they somewhat marginal?

Thanks (in advance) for your (kind) comments!
