THE GLOW on a 21st-century battlefield is more likely to come from a laptop than a campfire. And some of those laptops have produced "the blogs of war" that John Hockenberry has profiled in the August 2005 Wired magazine. They deserve bookmarking because some of them are books in their own right. I'm trawling around them at the moment to see how the story of Cindy Sheehan is resonating among active duty bloggers of the US military. Here are my regular milblog reads that will inform my judgment:
- Armor Geddon by Neil Prakash
- 67cshdocs by Michael Cohen (now shut down)
- 365 and a wakeup by Danjel Bout
- A Line in the Sand by Chris Missick
- Mudville Gazette by Greyhawk
- Blackfive by Matt
For a balanced read, go watch Green Day -- "Wake Me Up When September Ends" video (52 MB mov). JD Lasica marvels at the Hollywood set that makes the video rock.
