Silicon Republic reports on a Survey from Edelman that tells us that trust in the Technlogy industry is running at 65% but trust in the blogger community is at a lowly 7%.
Given that theÂ blogger community is dominated by technologists I find those numbers hard to stomach. Perhaps the selection set who gave feedback don’t read blogs?

Piaras gives a good clarification of it:
Coverage of this story in Brazil was amusing as well. Under the guise of plugging the supposed “growing influence” of blogs, the story I read states that while 41% of Brazilian “info-entials” say they read them — which means that a pretty significant plurality don’t bother — only 21% consider them reliable sources of information. Some influence. We find you amusing, we just don’t find you credible.
