[ Media and blogs ]

As I usually communicate in English about blogs and blogging, I had not really noticed the big discussions in Germany/Austria on "der Blog" or "das Blog" (cf. Taggesschau report). According to the new Duden, both forms can be used: neuter (das) or masculine (der). For the word "email" ("E-Mail" in German) or "sms", the use of the article can vary geographically: feminine (die) in Germany and neuter (das) in Austria/Switzerland (cf. Duden FAQ).
