Please, all of you out there, read this
And then come back and tell me that I'm wrong that older media is sucking up to old media as it is cutting off "new media".
Look, I know, it's a lot of buzzwords, and there's a lot of user-generated crap out there (trust me, I make my share of awfulness), but something about this struck me as "Oh look, here's how we can transition our ad-funded history into a new space, and stifle accessibility (i.e., the DIY crowd) at the same time!"
For all of the internet memes that drive me insane, for all the spam, and privacy concerns and this and that and whatever else, I'd still hate more to see this medium turn into a new broadcast top-down model.
Do you get that vibe?
