It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

Lawyer as Web Celeb

The Web Celeb 25 are recognized by Forbes."The Face of fame is changing. The ranks of the world's celebrities used to be dominated by millionaire actors, athletes and musicians, but the Internet has leveled the playing field. A kid with a video camera has access to as large an audience as the biggest Hollywood star. A mom with a blog can attract more readers than a best-selling author. And an opinionated entrepreneur can become a guru to millions."

So can lawyers. Among those named by Forbes as the top 25 celebrities of the worldwide web are these lawyers who blog: Markos Moulitsas, John Hinderaker, Michael Arrington, and Glenn Reynolds.

In the Blawg Review Awards 2005 and 2006, all four of these lawyers have been recognized, not for celebrity, per se, but for their various achievements as leading bloggers. Celebrity is nice too, if you have it -- and this ain't Forbes.
