“Real journalism matters”

The medium is the message. And while some of those media messages may stick, most lack substance. Look closely.

A plethora of unconsumed content

via giphy

Movies, books, magazines, music, and podcasts. There’s too much content and too little time.

We can try to keep up and multitask or listen to podcasts 2x their speed. But it’s a zero-sum game. The internet never ends. There will always be another Netflix show to catch up on.

Yet we mustn’t fret. We only have so many hours in the day.

An overdose of content. An underdose of time.

Attention competes with sleep.

We spend 18 hours of our day staring at the rectangular glow. How much of that time is consciously doing versus seeking distractive entertainment?

As tech journalist Jonathan Margolis points out, we’re consuming ever more media but not necessarily getting more intelligent. Yet, the sales of physical books are up! Go figure.

Winston Churchill on the importance of a free press

Riding the Juggernaut That Left Print Behind

“We are all on that train, the one that left print behind, the one where we are constantly in real time, where we know a little about everything and nothing about anything, really. And there is no quiet car.”

The train is a metaphor for life. It never stops moving. It’s all about the now space and time, just like the Internet.

If you get off the train, you’ll simply be left behind. Even if you hop back on, you will have skipped too many cars to catch up. But you may have given yourself a new life.

A love letter to Twitter

Twitter’s Creative Director Doug Bowman sums up his love for the platform before exiting:

I love how people can gain a new voice with Twitter. It has given me a louder and farther-reaching voice than I ever thought possible. And while I can only physically be in one place at one time, I love how Twitter distributes my awareness of what’s going on nearby or far away. At any moment, I can instantly know what’s going on in the next room, in the next town, or in a country halfway around the world.

Twitter is the microphone for the global machine.

Study: Email Lands More Customers Than Facebook Or Twitter, But Still Fewer Than Organic Search

In order of customer acquisition importance:

  • Search
  • Email
  • Social Media

In order of customer retention, it’s probably the reverse.
