Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

* I wish I knew more about how Comixology works with both information it gets from Amazon and to engage current comics realities. Like I would have thought that Captain Marvel would be dominant on the front page rather than one of a smattering of selections. That's not something I'll figure out doing anything other than paying a lot more attention, though.

* this article points to the writer's shift away from webcomics as a sign of how social media has changed on-line consumption. I figure that's true in the widest. Social media is content about you, your friends and the things you choose to spend your time on. Everything else pales in comparison. At some point there will be a significant, sustained pushback against social media driven consumption, but I don't expect it to have a significant impact on the basics of how media is consumed.

* finally: an exploration of a dominant format.
