Blogging Vs Journalism #4886754

I liked this so much, I’m just going to repeat it:

Know what’s bad about paper? Paper’s slow. Paper can’t tell you that OMG Steve Jobs is pulling out the long-awaited iPhone on stage right this second. Hell, even TV couldn’t bring a bulky setup into Jobs’s Macworld keynote to tell you that. Yes, I’m one of those jackasses who believes blogging is The Future Of Journalism. Not because we write any better (we’re even worse) or because we’re any more honest (we’re liars). But there are enough of us to refute each other, point out the good bits, and throw the winners onto Digg.

We’re not any closer to the truth. We’re just closer to the facts.

First class rant.
