How weblogs can turn an idea into an epidemic

Another must read by John Hiler is The Tipping Blog where he explains viral activity and how weblogs can turn an idea into an epidemic.

John's weblog, Microcontent News, is a Corante weblog that covers the microcontent sector of weblogs, webzines, email digests, personal publishing - and the business side of microcontent, including text-based microads and corporate blogging.
