Newspapers, Print, Future of Democracy, Etc.

Forgot: Dexter also tipped me off to this essay in a locale I would have gotten to eventually, but am glad he directed me to sooner rather than later. Always good to hear the contrarian view. Speaking of which, I gather that Congress is holding hearings on the future of newspapers, and this testimony today caused a bit of a fluproar. The entire testimony thus far is here.

Man, the age of the internet is amazing. For the past two days, I've been trying to track down some congressional committee testimony from 1878, and I'm here to tell you: it's a hell of a lot easier now to keep tabs on who says what in Congress.
