The New GateKeepers
There ia an absolutely fascinating series about the market for attention on Civilities. The summary would be a good place to start (The NewGatekeepers, Part 6: A Summary). I don't nessarily agree with everything said, particularly in Part 7, Solutions, but it is excellent reading.
I also want to note one further disagreement with a quote from Seth Finkelstein that is approvingly cited, "What I am saying is that bloggerdom is as gatekeeper-constricted as other Big Media. It's a gatekeeper of audience, not a gatekeeper of production, but this makes no difference in the final result." That isn't true. Would you rather have a gatekeeper of production, of distribution, or of audience? It does, ultimately, make a difference. If a law is passed does it matter if it was passed by a democracy or a dictator? It may be the same law, but process matters.
