Stealing stories: “The problem isn’t journalists stealing stories from blogs; the problem is that not enough of them do it. (nickdenton.org)

Publishing: Future’s in your hands: Developments in technology may signal the end of mass communication and the rise of more personalized media. “You no longer need to wait six weeks for information about a new product in a monthly magazine; with a tip-off from a trusted source, it only takes up to 10 minutes to find the product data, price and reseller sources with Google. Instead of relying on the opinion of a time-pressed reporter, you can discuss the issues with your peers in live online forums such as Internet Relay Chat rooms. Weekly and monthly publications continue to have a market, and a readership; it’s just a different market, and a smaller readership.” (independent.co.uk)

Fewer Media Owners, More Media Choices: “With a handful of companies deciding what makes it in programming, many points of view, many tastes are underrepresented in the marketplace.” (nytimes.com)

Research questions broadband’s speed appeal: “What (broadband) does do, though, is make using and accessing the Net a better experience giving people the confidence to explore the potential of the Internet more.” Also see: BBC Story. (via MediaSavvy)

Getting control of the connectivity monopolies: “If we don’t keep the connectivity monopolies out of our business, they will exercise control over us not simply to maximize our profits. Their self-interest, monitoring of our behavior, and cozy relationship with the government whence flows their profits makes them the ideal instruments of censors, intellectual property cartels, Scientologists, software monopolists, and anyone else who thinks they have a better idea than you do about what you should be doing in the privacy of your home...and in the publicity of the Internet.” (mediasavvy.com)
