The Publishing Partisans — Conservatives, Reformers, and Upstarts
A useful heuristic test to determine the politics of publishers today is to drop the Wikipedia question. Do you like it? Do you use it? The Wikipedia is to discussions of digital media what abortion is to the American electorate, the topic on which there can be no compromise.
Once again I’m reminded how I’m a one-man group by myself.
I thought I was in the Upstart category — but my attitude towards Wikipedia, for things that matter, is that of the U.S. during nuclear arms reduction talks with the old Soviets: Trust but verify.
