I love newspapers. I love their depth and breadth and seriousness of purpose. I love the way they feel in my hands. I should; I’ve read them for 45 years.
I love the web. I love its depth and breadth and varieties of purpose. I can’t imagine living in a time when I couldn’t Google anything and everything, and I have lived in such a time. I love the ability of so many people publishing and talking to each other, developing their own communities.
Mostly, I love journalism. Its traditional distribution methods have been disrupted by the web, by digital tools, by people themselves. That’s not bad, unless you’re a newspaper owner. If you’re a journalist, the disruption provides you more ways to get information, to talk with people and to give people access to your work.
Disruption is to be embraced. That’s what this blog is about. Except that I’ll veer into other topics from time to time.
