Desert to Jungle

Steven Johnson at South by Southwest: "The state of Mac news in 1987 was a barren desert. Today, it is a
thriving rain forest. By almost every important standard, the state of
Mac news has vastly improved since 1987: there is more volume,
diversity, timeliness, and depth.

I think that steady
transformation from desert to jungle may be the single most important
trend we should be looking at when we talk about the future of news.
Not the future of the news industry, or the print newspaper business:
the future of news itself."
