Way back on January 30th, 2007, I wrote an entry entitled The Fall of The Paper Newspaper, so it was interesting to see another piece written today titled, Pew study: Internet takes over papers as news source

Some 40 percent of those surveyed by Pew Research for the People & the Press say they get most of their international and national news from the Internet, up from 24 percent in September 2007

Something  just a bit sad about the decline of print media…

 

clippyI notice you haven’t read a book in ages, want some help with that?

 

 

 

For all of you that have said, “The Internet can’t be regulated”, shut up already and pick up a copy of, Code Version 2.0 by Lawrence Lessig. If you can’t provide at least as reasonable a counterpoint argument as the author then keep your vain repetitions to yourself.

Lessig is informed and articulate. If you don’t want to buy the book you can download Code Version 2.0 for free. If you’re one of those people that still believe that the Internet is the “Wild West” then maybe it is time to kick back fer a spell and sidle on in to another perspective fer a bit.

Bill Moyers, the award-winning PBS producer opened the National Conference for Media Reform and urged everyone to keep an eye on the Net Neutrality bill.

Track it day by day,” he said. “If we lose the future now, we’ll never get it back.”

You can watch Moyers’ opening remarks by visiting the Media Reform page.

Net Neutrality is quite possibly one of the most important bills looming in 2007. Big media definitely wants control, and Moyers, long-time critic of large media, is well worth listening to.
