Is it first nature to shun the big, the detail, the complication, the weight and go for something easy, concise, homy, simple. It must be for I feel lot more inclined off late to read blogs, links and articles in here on the ether rather the HBR, FT, Economic Times, Businessweek that I have access to. I think that's just it. "Access Rights" to information in the past made that information invaluable even if worthless, worthy even if irrelevant.
It's all changed and how. Internet smote Reader's Digest, Wired is pinged several times over The Independent, Telegraph, Washington Post and other such 'liberal' media, everyone has a pet online dictionary and Webster rarely does feature, wikipedia Vs britannica, cnet and cnet news is the highest clicked tech-based site vs "subscriber's only" PC Quest (just notice the slash in price in the last six months).
For how long, me thinks.
