This Sounds Right

Stever Boriss:

Jeff Jarvis is dead-right that the future of journalism is networked — where he is wrong is on who will be connected. In my view, there will be independent topic experts who create stories, and each will be networked to multiple separate entities that aggregate and edit those stories for their audiences. Right now, neither average citizens nor reporters are topic experts, nor are traditional editors aggregators. And yet, Old Media still resists change, even from allies like Jeff Jarvis. The NY Times has met the real enemy and it is themselves.

I've always thought this was the way things were going. I'm only surprised I haven't seen it written elsewhere before.
