Blogs = Newsgroups 2.0?

This is just a wild stab out there, but way back in the infancy of the web, around the time of .plan files and gopher and it's kin, there were newsgroups. Essentially community blogs that are still out there today, but because they are "out of the way" they are ignored by most people. These places share all the same things that blogs do, but with a user base that seems to be much more "geek". -edit: Shoulda checked Wired - they have an article on Jorn Barger - the protoblogger - (by Paul Boutin) who seems to have fallen on hard times.
