So, everybody’s been linking to Clay Shirky’s piece on complexity, and why traditional media empires are likely to be hard-pressed or downright unable to adjust to the new media landscape.
But nobody seems to be connecting it to what Wired called “The Good Enough Revolution”: “To some, it looks like the crapification of everything. But it’s really an improvement. And businesses need to get used to it, because the Good Enough revolution has only just begun.”
What print journalists need to realize is that while highly paid professional journalism is (occasionally) really, really good, the fact remains that amateur journalism that’s free is often good enough. And as I mentioned some time ago, you can’t beat free.
