I wrote a column (yet another…) about blogging and journalism the other day. It’ll run in a week or two. Soon after I finished writing it, I re-bumped into a eight year old quote, via a two year old quote,
The beautiful thing about this new meta-journalism is that it doesn’t
require a massive distribution channel or extravagant licensing fees. A
single user with a Web connection and only the most rudimentary HTML
skills can upload his or her overview of the day’s news. If the editorial sensibility is sharp enough, this kind of metajournalism could easily find enough of an audience to be commercially sustainable, given the limited overhead required to run such a service.
Wee, large et mammoth. It happened. Which then reminded me of those folk who still have trouble seeing bushes for vegetation, florists for flowers etc. Which then lead me back to the guy originally quoted eight years ago. Funny that.
