QOTD: Sweet Irony

“But it would be the web’s sweetest joke yet if the father of Fail Blog can succeed where even the mighty Rupert Murdoch faltered. This is the internet, and anything is possible.”

~Jemma Kiss, Guardian writer, discussing I Can Haz Cheesburger (and Fail Blog) honcho Ben Huh’s challenge to traditional media organizations. Also, another gem from that piece: “The front page, though deeply symbolic for publishers, is largely irrelevant online with a constantly changing news selection and readers accessing stories directly from links on social networks.” Worth the read.
