blog, wiki- my own view, my network views and more

There is something about wikis and actually blogs that does not convince me. I keep thinking why they became so popular, especially in the case of blogs, that seem so sequential in a sense. You either search them or you go by date. I read a post from Enrique Alemida talking about structuring wikis and I thought yes, that is kind of what the wikis are missing, and probably in my view the blogs too: different areas or spots, some kind of organization, such as my personal view, my networks views, my talks, my posts, views by tag groups. Then today, reading cafe au lait I found one blog talking about Why blogs work. An intersting view, the guy gets to see blogs from the perspective of a non-technical person and realizes that "normal" people don't use hierarchies the way we programmers do. This is a different analysis that like someone else comments in his blog, explains in turn this something that I feel is missing in blogs and probably wikis as well ...
Then, in the end even if I still suspect that there are improvements that would make blogs better, I'll try to keep in mind this non-hierarchical view of non-programmer mortals.
