Newspapers as Media

Jeff Jarvis sheds deconstructive light highlighting  print media roots with  newspaper editor CP Snow’s essay.

Before revolution comes language. Before language comes notation.  Every droidian Internet company builds empire on its language (PostScript) or an API (Google Map) . The smart ones found a protocol and if all else fails – use an XML schema. Jeff Jarvis explains media building with a Newspaper API:

If you want to be big in media in the future, make yourself into an API

Finally another JJ pointer to Rob Curley and his effort to create multimediate newspapers.
