Michael Manning, New York Review of Books: "Over the past few months alone, a remarkable amount of original, exciting, and creative (if also chaotic and maddening) material has appeared on the Internet. The practice of journalism, far from being leeched by the Web, is being reinvented there, with a variety of fascinating experiments in the gathering, presentation, and delivery of news. And unless the editors and executives at our top papers begin to take note, they will hasten their own demise."
At the bookstore, I picked up a new book by blogger turned successful author Heather Armstrong. Don't underestimate the emerging power of this medium (despite the hype).
