I think I might have Web 2.0 disease

March 30, 2008

It’s finally happened.  I was sitting at the table, reading the dead-trees edition of Chicago Tribune, and when I got to the end of a particularly interesting article, I paused.  I felt a vague unease; something was missing, but what?

Oh yeah… there was no place to click to leave a comment. Man, newspapers are so screwed. 

Update: see Coturnix’ post on Generation is a mindset, not age.  Like I been sayin’!

    Felt privately embarrassed for a moment, then sorry for all the people who work at the paper, transport it, deliver it…

    Recent Simpson’s episode had Nelson Muntz doing the “Ha-Ha! Your media’s dead!” to a print journalist.

    Fundamentally, that’s our loss. Until recently, print media offered some of the best defense against the encroaching sameness of consolidated media.

    Greg Mitchell is still up there, making a fight of it.
