Very interesting way of looking at current developments, this idea that individual stories (or perspectives) take center stage. I've read somewhere this quote by David Foster Wallace: "TV is not vulgar and prurient and dumb because the people who compose the audience are vulgar and dumb. Television is the way it is simply because people tend to be extremely similar in their vulgar and prurient and dumb interests and wildly different in their refined and aesthetic and noble interests". The newest digital technologies are helping magnifying these personal interests (which may or may not be "refined"), creating new "places" to share them with others. Whether these others are a big group or a small group, it doesn't really matter: while everybody seems so preoccupied with "how many readers a blogger has" (a typical broadcast-era preoccupation), the real, disruptive novelty is that now everyone with basic computing literacy and access to the Internet can *be* a blogger or a youtuber or a podcaster or a myspacenik; can use media to tell a story. Maybe what you describe as an "ancient form of media" is actually a new form of "direct media".

If make a choice to accomplish the already written essays, you should remember that that demands a lot of work! Different persons flush their research paper, because they are not experienced enough! This is sad, but the essay buying service can help such kind of people any time they need it.

I love this blog post. I just found your blog via a link from the ITConversations download of your Web 2.0 talk on TED's evolution from conference to media company to platform. Sounds like a typical link-journey ... but to my great good fortune, especially after a talk *I* just gave comparing Wikipedia to the cave paintings in Altamira, the links led me here.

Are you still blogging? Where? I want to hear more from you. How can I do that?

My best regards,
Gardner
