On the media....

Two worthwhile items for those interested in the media -- new and old.

Today's New York Times Book Review has a very interesting review essay by Richard Posner, the economist-judge-critic-blogger (!) who seems to churn out more thoughtful material in one day than 99.99% of us. Posner's essay focuses on the recent chaotic dynamics of the news media, and his basic conclusion is that most of the tumult can be traced to economic and technological developments, not major political shifts or conspiracies of the left or right.

And turning back the clock a bit, I listened to a "podcast" of a July 8 broadcast of NPR's On The Media and was rewarded with more insights into the brilliant success of Wikipedia, a source that I am making increasing use of in my daily work.

Both are well worth the time to read and listen to....
