The newspapers were an excellent aggregator of information. They had the time, they were paid to gather this information, and they produced it in a single spot; for free! Granted, sometimes the commentary that went along with the aggregation wasn't so hot, but at least it was there. Accessible. Easy to find and use. Now, that source seems to be going away.

The Death of the Print Media and the Birth of the New Blogosphere - Maize n Brew Must read from our Wolverines blogger Dave. I mean, I spent the last five minutes trying to think of something that would give the proper weight and respect to Dave's piece and I can't. It's a brilliant look at the relationships between bloggers, newspapers and the convergence of the two. If it's too long for you to read right now, I'd suggest you print it out and take it to the can (in case that's the first time you've heard anyone doing that, which I doubt).
