Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!! Yeah, like I’m going to trust a dude to remember to take the pill every day! Bwahahahahahaha!! Also, can you imagine the mood swings? Christ. The last thing I want to do on a Sunday night is hold my pillow-sniveling boyfriend and tell him over and over againt that he’s not fat.
“But it always strikes me as weird when bloggers, whose primary task is to comment on news articles, cheer that newspapers are dying. It’s a bit like cheering that you’ve just set fire to the corn fields of your small village. But blog triumphalism has always been a phenomenon of people who couldn’t live without this technology crowing about the demise of everything that’s brought them there.”—
There is a lot wrong with this statement on both sides of the argument. Newspapers are dying because people prefer to read their news online, and because by the time newspapers print the news, its already old news. Its simply an evolution, there is no hatred of newspapers, nobody is rooting against them.
Creating some kind of animosity between one platform for transmitting news against another is like pitting the Pony Express against Federal Express.
Newspapers evolve, go online, and the ones who understand the medium best will survive, just like any other industrial evolution.
