The power of blogs to spread privacy stories

I am amazed with the power of blogs and amateur journalists to start the ball rolling on what become news stories. Not long ago, nobody knew about Sony's rootkit. Then, a lone blogger posted Sony, Rootkits and Digital Rights Management Gone Too Far. Now, there are more than five hundred separate stories in the more convential media that show up when you search Google news' for "rootkit". Amazing.
