Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

* there's a lot to ponder about digital in general with this article on the New York Times and their long move away from print. Just the idea of identifying a core offering and then working your way into indispensability through working in other factors is food for thought.

* never heard of this site and then I read two people casually talking about it on the same day. I love it when the Internet works like that, I don't get that feeling as much as I used to.
