Bob Metcalf said (at the ABM spring meeting I’m attending): Bob Metcalfe (as in inventor of ethernet and the Metcalfe in “Metcalfe’s Law“) on blogs: “If you want to understand what’s going on with blogs, Google the name ‘Clay Shirky.’

Also, in discussing the way the Internet has “disrupted” newspapers
(surveys show readers think news and information online is more
“timley, relevant and trustworthy), Metcalf said: “Newspapers have
become abusive monopolies and probably deserve what they’re getting.”

(By the way, after he spoke, Metcalf, went to the back of the
auditorium and sat with the folks on the back row… that’s why he’s
sitting next to me to as I write this.)
