Most hearty congratulations to my friend Dan Kennedy, whose blog Media Nation has been selected by The Boston Globe as one of 64 Web sites on Boston life that you should know.
It's some very well-deserved recognition. Dan writes with great insight about the press, local and national politics, technology, culture and other passions, which include Bob Dylan, the Red Sox and hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire.
The full list appears in this Sunday's Globe magazine. Here's what they said about Dan's blog:
Dan Kennedy's medianation.blogspot.com is required reading for any follower of local media. But the former media critic for the Boston Phoenix, who now teaches at Northeastern and writes for the British newspaper The Guardian, exercises the blogger's imperative to bloviate beyond his expertise, such as when he raised the prospect of a "nasty, brutish, and short postseason" for the Sox (not quite, but not bad either, Dan).
Just for the record - I've known Dan for a long time and he never, ever bloviates and certainly not beyond his expertise.
