[TIPS] What are the Differences Between Message Boards and Weblogs?

http://www.commoncraft.com/archives/000768.html

The question, Whats the difference between a blog and a Discussion forum? gets asked a lot of times by lots of different people. The answer is not easily explained when you not right in front of a computer. NOW it IS! Just point them to this page that does an excellent job of explaining the difference. Theres even a nice table there that compares blogs and forums side by side in a number of categories.

So, if youre not sure what the difference is, THIS page just may clear it up for you. From the maker (Lee Lefever) of RSS in Plain English, and Wikis in Plain English.
