- How Netflix gets your movies to your mailbox so fast -- chicagotribune.com - Interesting piece about a visit to a Netflix warehouse.
- Gawker vs. The Washington Post: Is Linking Stealing? - Tuned In - TIME.com - "The rules of how to do this kind of post are not set in stone, but in general, it's better to summarize an interesting article and refer readers to the original, or add some value to it with analysis or opinion or more information, and give explicit, clear credit."
- Worst Part of a Trip May Be Booking It on the Web - NYTimes.com - Not me. I really like being able to sit down and make my own tradeoffs rather than having someone else do it for me. I much prefer booking my own flightds than doing the back and forth with a corporate travel department as I sometimes have to.
- Op-Ed Guest Columnist - Twittergraphy - NYTimes.com - Maybe we need a codebook.
- Out of the Kitchen, Onto the Couch - NYTimes.com - Cooking shows up, actual cooking down.
- Photojournalism’s Coming Crisis | Newspaper Death Watch - I agree with a lot of this--up to a point. I don't think pubs can crowdsource everything but a microstock for editorial could indeed drive pricing down.
- The Media Equation - A Talk Magazine Party That Presaged the Decline - NYTimes.com - "There may never be another large magazine launch ever, and certainly not one that was accompanied by the fanfare of Talk." In retrospect, is easy to criticize blindness to Web's impact as myopic, but it's not so much that people didn't see the Web but they didn't appreciate the full economic impact that it would have on print. (Or they assumed could just over time move print to Web and keep everything else the same.)
