Clouds Over Cathy’s World

One of my favorite bloggers and columnists, Cathy Seipp, is fighting cancer and has been for awhile. Another miracle she is. Looks like things are a bit more difficult just now, though. Sending your blessings and prayers to Cathy and her daughter, Maia, would be a good thing.

Bloggers and Main Stream Media – Get Ready To Rrrrrrrrrrumble!

In regards to the relationship between blogs and the Main Stream Media, David Carr writes in the New York Times:

The cliché about not arguing with people who buy ink by the barrelful is in the process of being replaced by another: best not to pick a fight with people who have gigabytes of text at their disposal unless you are interested in a duel on equal footing.

I think about it differently. Note to the Main Stream Media: It’s best not to bring a Thesaurus to a Dictionary fight.
