"My question is; does anyone have a favorite blog site that breaks down
into topical areas? By that I mean one that has the global power of
participation that we observe on this list, but more importantly one
that allows someone to enter a specific topic area and converse with
individuals that are truly interested in that topic."

The very best such format I've seen actually occurs at a site whose
views I 
mostly find sort of reprehensible, www.tcsdaily.com. The place is a den
of 
Friedmanesque economics, libertarian politics and an uncomfortable
amount of paid 
infomercials for the corporate powers. Much time is spent in convincing
us of 
the virtues of free enterprise, GM crops, the pharmaceutical industry
and the 
fact that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by evil Greenies.

So don't go there for the politics. But look at the way the discussion
lists 
for each article are grouped. They take a tree format, where responses
are 
grouped by thread and you can readily distinguish different
conversations.

Another nifty feature is that you get an emailed notice whenever someone

responds to a comment you've posted. Whoever put their site package
together is 
well ahead of everyone else in both the blog crowd and the list crowd.
IMO.
