The article states that the plastic industry is gaining interest in Weblogs. Blog writers are a slow-growing breed in the plastics and manufacturing arenas. A blog is an outgrowth of a personal log or diary, but it is placed on a Web site so that others can read and post responses. Writing a blog is just another way for the Society of Plastics Engineers to provide information for its members. A look at the blog finds few responses, but Gregory Grudzinski, SPE senior manager of marketing and development, said interest is growing.
