Blogrolls: defined conversational fields

I read The Weblog: An Extremely Democratic Form in Journalism earlier today. In it, Jay Rosen writes:

Some weblogs have a long list of other blogs they name, highlight and link to, (a blogroll, in the vernacular). This an author uses to define a conversational field, as if to say: “listen to me as I talk to them.”
How simple is that? My blogroll tells you with whom I'm having a conversation. In addition to you, of course!

Hmmmm... Now that you and I know what my 'Blogroll' is, I'll post mine soon. And, I'll post my OPML file, too, so you'll know who I'm listening to. (And I've been listening in spades, Yo Mike Walsh)
