Lloyd Nebres works for UC Berkeley's Academic Talent Development Program. For several years he has taught a summer course for high school students called The Internet Classroom... For his summer 2000 course Lloyd decided to introduce weblogging using Userland's Editthispage as weblog host. Little did Lloyd know that this would turn into a thriving community of 20-some regularly blogging high school students beyond the summer and throughout the past school year, with students introducing other friends to blogging, gradually leading to the involvement of peers, relatives, siblings, friends, and other adults.
