[2b2k] Clay Shirky, info overload, and when filters increase the size of what’s filtered

For example, blogs act as filters, recommending other pages. Blogs contextualize the places they point to, sometimes at great length.

Despite these challenges to newspapers, Starkman believes that we can and must “…find ways to preserve and transfer their most important attributes to a digital era, even as we push them to adapt to new financial, technological, and cultural realities.” If, seeing those challenges, we FONeros still thought it was possible to preserve most papers in something like their current form, we’d adopt Plan A too.

So I've decided to post the entire debate, from beginning to end, including postings, comments and everything, on this blog.

Does reposting to a blog that has ads violate the copyright license?
