Elite, Elderly Read About EPIC

The New York Times has started up a print column about what’s being discussed in the blogosphere. EPIC gets a brief mention in the first entry.

PS: Sorry, James Fallows. Google’s awesome and everything, but you’re still going to have to actually report.

Dan Mitchell writes: 'what the "blogs will destroy the media business" argument misses is that there are fundamental economic reasons that it can never happen.' But see, the way it could go down in the EPIC universe is that one kind of media source (Internet news portals like AOL, Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo!) uses blogs and other user-created/defined information to challenge traditional media (print and television). You know, sort of like how networks took reality TV and used it to destroy creative television as we know it. Not to totally endores these speculations, but -- are there any (as-yet-unnamed) "fundamental economic reasons" why *that* could never happen?

EPIC's becoming well known.

I tired replying the comment but I just kept coming up with more questions for myself. I'll have to think on it more.
