Chris, good post and thanks for links. One thing, Shirky's piece is NOT an editorial. That is his blog, it is a blog post. An editorial is a newspaper's corporate unsigned opinion about something or other. A lot of people go around calling articles and letters and blog posts as editorials, they are not editorials. when you call that an editorial, it makes you look journalistscally illiterate,. Look it up, Chris, It's important to know your terms.
