"I don't want to see us descend into a nation of bloggers...I think we need editorial oversight now more than ever. Anything we can do to help newspapers find new ways of expression that will help them get paid, I am all for," - Steve Jobs.
As someone who spent my first five years blogging while also having to explain to every person I knew what a "blog" was, it is pretty staggering to see how swift the revolution has been. We have gone from being contemptible poseurs to being a lethal threat. But nothing has persuaded me more of the value of blogging than watching old media companies try to adapt. If MSM editors are so smart and so essential, why didn't they see this coming? And why have they been, with some exceptions, so inept in integrating it? And it's these losers who hold the key to journalism's future? The same people who helped bury it?
