Citizen Journalism Redux

The IDS article mentioned a while back on this venue has been published as "busting out block from buster" (lack of capitals intended...). As produced, it's a nice roundup of rental venues for those living in Bloomington, though gives short shrift to the free venues (and indeed, I expect Herman would consider it a failing of his educational purpose to be bell hooks -ized as he is here).

What didn't happen, as in the MeFi thread referenced by A in the comments to the last post, is the impact of new technology on the information gathered for the article. This may, on reflection (and conversation with AZ) a sign of differences between young 'uns and old 'uns. Though I've been online long enough to remember when all these things (weblogs, IM, etc) were unexpected, I still relate to them differently than those who have been surrounded by them for most of their formative years.

Pass the geritol McFlurry!

You know what strikes me as mighty peculiar in this article, and it gets more so the more I think about it? It's that they refer to loans from libraries as free rentals!
