Quote of the Day - Let us make a special effort to stop communicating with each other, so we can have some conversation.
Bloggers have a conversation, legacy media dictates how we (used to) learn the news.
As a reader, you participate in that conversation. You can immediately write into the editor, and unlike newspapers, actually get published. Immediately. More often than not, you'll get a responsive email from the blogger.
When was the last time that a newspaper editor wrote back to you?
Beyond the flame-outs that used to be prevalent, the internet is growing up, as is blogging. The old media is moving over, making room for the newbies.
But, we still need each other.
To further this conversation, MIPTC is working on adding the Trackback feature available on Moveable type. MIPTC isn't built on a pre-programmed format; we're here from the ground up with HTML code.
Even though you can get the specs, we'll also make them available for platforms that aren't built on the pre-programmed platforms. That way, everyone can talk back and track back.
Happy New Year!
