The other day Glenn Reynolds mentioned this hatchet piece on his book, but until just now I didn't realize the most important thing about it: I'm mentioned!
Words words words, yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah, and then:
There's one place, at least, where this unstoppable phenomenon may indeed quickly triumph. It's precisely the area where Reynolds now toils: media. Reynolds would argue that he is a proponent of what his fellow blogger Jim Treacher calls "we-dia," journalism practiced by the technologically empowered, amateur masses.
Actually, the word came about by accident when I was trying to explain to the ER doc why I stuck my tongue in the weedeater.* But close enough!
