CLAY SHIRKY ON newspapers and thinking the unthinkable: “That is what real revolutions are like. The old stuff gets broken faster than the new stuff is put in its place. The importance of any given experiment isn’t apparent at the moment it appears; big changes stall, small changes spread. Even the revolutionaries can’t predict what will happen.”

Plus this: “Society doesn’t need newspapers. What we need is journalism.” Related thoughts from Ed Driscoll.
