The Economist on “New Media”

There I was, peacefully reading The Economist.

I made it through the essay advocating kicking Rummy to the curb. I made it through the piece on Hamas. I thought it was safe to venture into the “SPECIAL REPORT ON NEW MEDIA.”

I was wrong.

It started innocently enough, with a review of Ben and Mina. No surprise finding them here.

But then came the unexpected. Out of the blue.

Hardcore quotations from one Jeremy Zawodny, “a prominent blogger and software engineer at Yahoo!, an internet portal.”

Man am I jealous. That lucky bastard. :)
