A good précis of Arianna Huffington’s talk at Activate 09. Two quotes stand out:
Mainstream media suffer from attention deficit disorder. New media suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Nice. But not sure it carries. Need to think it over. Too reductive, methinks. At times, surely both suffer from both?
The second, from Will.i.am, he of the Black Eyed Peas, of all people, talking last year at the Democratic Party convention in Denver:
You consume old media sitting on a couch. You consume new media galloping on a horse.
