Off the Couch

“The Long Tail metaphor helps old media people feel like they’re still in charge. So does the idea of Citizen Media, because old media people are cynics about citizens, they think we’re lazy couch potatoes who have never had a good idea or a noble thought…and our job is to consume, consume, consume — what they tell us to….Nice story, but that’s not what’s going on.” – Dave Winer


“I don’t think of my what I do here as production of ‘information’ that others ‘consume’. Nor do I think of it as ‘one-to-many’ or ‘many-to-many’. I thnk of it as writing that will hopefully inform readers.” – Doc Searls
