Morning Reading 8 17 09Posted: August 17, 2009
Time to give my new home it’s first unique post! A few debates from the last few days worth checking out:
- On the Link Economy [Buzzmachine] N.b., Jeff Jarvis is responding to Arnon Mishkin’s “Fallacy of the Link Economy” piece on PaidContent.org, which was also taken apart by TechCrunch Sunday afternoon.
- The Press Loves a Hero, but… [Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post responds to last week’s Op-Ed by Dan Rather]
- Online Coverage is Harder to Get, or is it? [Valeria Maltoni]
- Using the ‘Steal-O-Meter’ to Gauge if Stories Steal or Promote [MediaShift]
I love that I’m likely considered no more than a news aggregator by Mishkin. Then again, there isn’t exactly a revenue stream of ads down the sidebar, so I think his head would explode.
More later today on some other posts from over the weekend.
