The Drudge Report has been notable as an online trend setter. Started in 1996, Matt Drudge initially distributed his Report as an e-mail newsletter. He first launched his site in 1997 as a supplement to the e-newsletter, but Drudge eventually stopped the e-mail version and published exclusively through the site.
The Drudge Report has been credited with setting or accelerating numerous online media trends, including online content aggregation and blogging.
Is Drudge's new mobile site a sign of the times? What do you think?
