The Living Web

What term shall we use to describe all the sites that change often? News sites, web logs, journals, web 'zines, slashdot clones, wikis -- all are places where people read and write daily (or weekly, or hourly).

Daypop calls this "the living Web". I've been using "web log and web journal" to describe all these things. Zeldman calls them "personal sites", which begs the question of what's personal: if Zeldman hires a crew of designers and becomes an even larger studio, would zeldman.com cease to be a personal site? I don't think so....
