Serendipity
 / 

Having heard many a stricken, Webphobic news editor decry the introduction of “choice” to media consumption — “What about the delicious serendipity of discovering all the amazing articles we’ve carefully hand-selected for them?!” — this Rafat Ali quote rings of Absolute Truth:

One thing which somehow everyone lamented yesterday: the end of serendipity, as choice in news sources and methods of consumption becomes an increasing reality. My reaction: what you people call serendipity, we call links. What you people call the homepage, we call Bloglines. What you call indepth-reporting, we call blogging a story to death.
