I Always Did Like Michael Crichton

More to come .... the end of Mass Media?

By: Jack Shafer

In 1993, novelist Michael Crichton riled the news business with a Wired magazine essay titled "Mediasaurus," in which he prophesied the death of the mass media—specifically the New York Times and the commercial networks. "Vanished, without a trace," he wrote.

So Michael Crichton was apparently pretty farsighted in his observations while some critics remain in denial others have begun to see the trend for what it is.

Now! If we can just keep the meddlers in government from screwing up the open and free access model of the internet!

( It's sunny and gorgeous outside now so I'm out of here until that changes!)
