- Charles on… anything that comes along » David v Goliath in the newsroom, and why we need new wrappers for journalism
Charles Arthur on his epiphany that it's okay (if not actually good) to prioritise fast over right on the web: "To repeat: journalism is the process and publishing is the wrapper that you put around journalism in order to make it profitable and sustainable. Journalism will continue, just as putting books into parcels will continue, even if Amazon disappears; you’ll just do it yourself, buying it at a local store and sending it to Granny. Might be more expensive than Amazon, but that’s just how it is." (journalism blogging publishing business_models )

The more an ad is Dugg, the less the advertiser will have to pay. Conversely the more an ad is buried, the more the advertiser is charged, pricing it out of the system.
