Dave Winer :
The silos are about limits, the web has none. The web is open to developers as well as writers. It's still where the future will happen and journalism will be part of it.
another quote :
I see journalism making the same mistake I made in the early 90s. They look at the advantages what they call the "platforms" have over trying to make a go of it independently. They want those advantages. But also like me in the 80s, they want to keep their independence. They want to be mavericks, Woodwards and Bernsteins, and, at the same time, be paid by the people and companies they will have to challenge.
