In which Daniel and Greg get into the newspaper business, printed media, bloggers vs. journalists, and Resident Evil. It’ll all make sense in the end.
We started this week with our main segment about newspapers and printed media. Is there still value to the newspaper? Greg is a newspaper guy going back more than a decade and has some insight. He’s worked in that business and he’s an internet guy, so he’s walked both sides. This segment was inspired by an article in the New York Times, In Defense of the Power of Paper. This led into a bit that seeks to answer the question: what’s the difference between a blogger and a journalist?
After the break we came back with some media goings-on.Resident Evil: Retribution opens this weekend, and I’m fairly excited for it. I’m a fan of the series.
Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger has been scheduled to keynote Affiliate Summit West 2013 – how awesome is that? Here’s a guy that had a movie made about him, a movie that went on to become a cultural touchstone for millions of people. Pretty exciting! (In between the recording and the posting of this episode, it was announced that the founder of Baby Einstein, Julie Clark, will be another keynote for the event. So we have a one named Daniel and another whose last name is Clark. FREAKY.)
A little light comics news as we talk a little bit about the possible movie adaptation of Y: The Last Man, and we wrapped up with a little bit about the iPhone 5.
