What has become clear to the average citizen who wants to stay current but who's spinning from the onslaught is that we can no longer rely on media to curate and guide the news; we have to do it for ourselves.
Like most journalists, I want to think, and I want to write. Sure, we can write books, but most writers can't earn a living any more by writing books. We're meant to be blogging. We're meant, in other words, to be giving the thing we used to be paid for away, in the ether, for free.
