Here are some items (with a brief commentaries) I bookmarked over the weekend using Google Reader.:
- Why iPad Magazine Apps Suck: They're Defined By The Past, Not The Future | Techdirt – Yet another essay on the obvious: As I have written, the realization that creators of early iPad apps missed the mark. It turns out that people want to use the iPad to, get this, read articles.
- The critic Thomas Frank misled the readers of Harpers about my interview with Demand Media's CEO. And when I say "misled" I am being polite. – Jay Rosen: Public Notebook – Jay Rosen TKOs Thomas Frank.
- Cooks Source editor says future of magazine in doubt | TeleRead – If you haven't followed this story, it's worth catching up on: A tale that proves one thing: Ignorance of the law is, well, ignorant. But it's even more ignorant when you are ignorant of wit, and you try to be witty. And you are ignorant of what really ticks off bloggers, and you do so in a way that paints a big target on your butt, with a sign on your back that says, "Kick Me."
