I understand that bloggers are out there in big, big numbers but that was not the basis for the credentials that we were putting forward.

We produce a regular, weekly radio show on the internet about golf, specific to beginner golfers. This was the medium that I wanted to have credentials issued for.

Good point. I'd say that "traditional media" for these folks still doesn't include, podcasts, blogs, vblogs, e-mags and the like. If it can't be measured in traditional ways (i.e. Nielsen, etc.), they don't know what to do with it. Keep up the good fight.

The LPGA has the CBS/Dan Rather mentality when it comes to emerging technologies or media formats. Blogging brought a network news division to their knees and cost Rather his credibility/job.

Ask the LPGA board what a Podcast is and they would tell you it is fishing for Dolphins.

I liken traditional media to trying to stop a cruise ship. It takes a ship miles to slow down and stop, even when the engines are turned off. It's momentum keeps taking in the same direction. The same goes for "old" media. They can't just turn on a dime like "new" media can.

That may be true Bruce and a good analogy until the same ship is beached. Then it stops on a dime and gives you nine cents change.

Some people think that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Big organizations and ones with a long history, especially public ones, are full of bureauocracy and politics. Things change very slowly.
