My Favorite Subject: You

Hi there. Welcome to a new blog/column/site/space carved out for me by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, who’ve invited me to join the team.

I’m a pretty boring person, but if for some reason you’re interested in verifying that, you’ve got some options.

I also hope that MediaMemo is descriptive enough of a name. But in case you’re wondering: I’ll be writing, frequently, about the ongoing battle between the established media business and the technology that is reshaping it day by day. It’s a pretty big beat, and an exciting one.

But enough about me. Let’s talk about you.

Specifically, let’s talk about how you can make MediaMemo a whole lot better: By giving me feedback. Tell me what I’m missing, what I got wrong, what I need to take a closer look at. Praise is fine, too. But I’ve got a thick skin, and what I really need is an honest, thoughtful input from the best sources out there: You folks.

So please, drop me a line, as frequently as you’d like. You can sound off on any particular post by leaving a comment. Or if you’d like to be a bit more discreet, you can contact me directly:

I look forward to hearing from you. Now, let’s get to work.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
