Chris Anderson: 'Maybe Media Will Be a Hobby Rather than a Job'

Sorry about the dearth of posts of late... My hobby has been making demands of my time!

Wired magazine's Chris Anderson has, as always, things to say which we need to listen to. This is the guy who propounded the theory of "The Long Tail".

"Maybe Media Will Be a Hobby Rather than a Job"

Provocative, that.

Read the full Der Spiegel story here.


But if the definition of a hobby is a pursuit you hugely enjoy regardless of the remuneration derived, then I have indeed been engaged in my hobby for for the past fifty years.

And might not media hobbyists be rather more honest and forthright than some of the supposed professionals? The video below is a response from Amsterdam to a particularly vile piece of Fox News editorialising.
