Some journalism blogs, like Micro Persuasion and Jim Grisanzio, have picked up last week’s profile in the Telegraph. Jim expresses one of the major reasons why this blog exists:
The information the docs were offering was complex and many times serious. Trivializing it could have profound implications. It needed more time to be explained and understood than the 60 second special report on the news with dramatic music and MTV-like camera editing. And the 250 word story in the paper where your part got maybe 20 words didn’t cut it, either. This is a very different community with a distinct culture that doesn’t translate well in the media. I’m looking forward to reading their stuff. Unfiltered.
