Jerry, I only found this just now. Thank you so much for all of your support and guidance during my stay at SMT -- I learned a lot from you. I pray that you will always treasure the time you spend with your wife.
And you especially should use your full feed if you want your posts to be considered for Social Media Today :)
Alan, thanks for the link to Mousavi1388's Flickr stream, I've been using his shots to illustrate my blog posts about Iran.
As good as it is for us to be able to monitor what's going on there, the bigger benefits go to the Iranians themselves.
Curse you, Bowles, you just enticed me into spending far too much of my afternoon reading the post, reading the comments, and following some of the links.
In a less light-hearted way, curse you, Charlotte-Anne Lucas, for undermining your own valid argument by resorting to invective and ad hominem attacks. I agree that Jerry overstates his case by implying that there are NO examples of Internet-grown quality journalism. But you would be more persuasive if you delivered your views in a civil manner.
Journalism DOES matter. Newspapers DON'T own journalism -- but they've been the most important source of it for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, their business model is utterly doomed. I think there always be some market for print on paper, but as portable readers and wireless technology continue to improve, there will be even less reason to spend $1.50 on the New York Times to read yesterday's news during this morning's commute.
I don't know what it will look like, but I think technological advances will help provide some solution. (I also think technology ultimately will solve global warming, but that's an argument for a different website.)
Finally, and only partly as an excuse to link back to my own blog, I can't let the juxtaposition in one blog post of Jon Stewart, MSNBC and Fox News pass without offering Stewart's brilliant take on the passing of the torch from what I like to think of as Faux News to MSDNC.
David, what's really insidious is that people who have used Facebook for a while can tend to develop a trust in the service. I thought of Facebook as a reputable service, and it was enough to overcome my sense of caution.
I'm not really that old, but I'm getting good vibrations off the musical reference.
I'm curious about the .BIZ, listed as your sponsor -- I see the nifty flash promo on the SMS page, but it doesn't seem to click through to anything. Is there a company called .BIZ?
