Let’s see what Clay Shirky is telling us about the WWW and the news. BTW, In The Long Tail, Chris Anderson calls Shirky “a prominent thinker on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies.”[5] source for me, Wikipedia.


Let’s review yesterday — Pair up for comment and dicussion

1. What did we discover that ABC News and the New York Times had in common?

2. What news developments has the WWW yielded?

3. How does this compare with say, Google News?

I concluded with my sense that this evolutionary change in news media started withe the Drudge Report


It then evolved into the Huffington Post. What is the Huffington Post?


The Daily Beast by Tina Brown is its chief competition — but its failing. What problem do you see for the Beast. Why might it be failing?
