  1. This is the best defense of the internet as a news source. It comes from “The Long Tail” by Chris Anderson.

    Since nothing on the Web is authoritative, it’s up to you to consult enough sources so that you can make up your own mind. This is the end of spoon-fed orthodoxy and infallible institutions, and the rise of messy mosaics of information that require – and reward – investigation. The sixties told us to question authority, but they didn’t provide us with the tools to do so. Now we have those tools. The question today is how best to use them without becoming overwhelmed by uncertainty.

    If you really want to understand the way the internet is changing the world this is a must read.
