in thread parsing weblogs

yes, actually i had the same problem searching here on perlmonks for perl-weblog issues and finding the term "weblog" being used mostly meaning "apache logfile".

what is a weblog?
"a website that is updated frequently, with new material posted at the top of the page."
or according to weblogs.com:
A weblog is personal -- it's done by a person, not an organization.(..)
A weblog is on the Web -- it doesn't get printed, it can be updated frequently, it's very low cost to produce, and it can be accessed through a Web browser.
A weblog is published -- words flow through templates, the process is automated, the writer and designer are elevated.(..)
And finally, a weblog is part of communities. No weblog stands alone, they are relative to each other and to the world.(..)"


but it seems to me the term is not completely defined, as slashdot is also called a weblog.
if one wants to get more information on weblogs, i can recommend the page of rebecca blood which even wrote some books about 'blogging (find more information on her site).

a good search engine for blogs is blogdex.media.mit.edu

btw: the perlmonks site seems to be some hybrid of a Wiki and a Weblog.. or did i miss something?
