The long comment tail

One of the more interesting and articulate comment threads I’ve read in a long time is taking place on the BoingBoing Gadgets blog regarding the difference in Wired magazine and the website While there is some typical flaming among the comments, most of the thread is written by magazine and web tech-oriented writers — many of them among the best in the business. Even Wired magazine editor-in-chief Chris Anderson enters the fray.

Someone needs to create an annotated version of the comments to explain who everyone is.

  • Thanks for the pointer to one of the most interesting and valuable comment threads I’ve read in quite a while. It’s worth pointing out that even though print Wired and are particularly identified with all things Internet-y, the entire discussion applies pretty much to every magazine publishing organization I know of.
