This man, who apparently thinks the future of everything is Free, refuses to use the words journalism and media in some attempt to reshape the way he views the world.
In this interview, he says he doesn’t read newspapers, but then admits to reading articles sent to him through RSS or Twitter.
What he’s saying is that media and journalism are dead because he doesn’t go to their sites or buy their newspapers. Really? Really Chris Anderson? HOW WOULD THOSE STORIES BE WRITTEN IF NOT FOR MAINSTREAM MEDIA? I get they are delivered differently now, but they still form the backbone of how we receive our information.
How can someone in charge of a magazine, with both an online and offline presence, say these things seriously? Who hired this guy?
