metablogging: down the river

Worth a read is this aricle from Wired.com on the nexus of media and blogging and the changes going on down at the Cincinatti Enquirer: To Save Themselves, US Newspapers Put Readers to Work.


Some curious economics in there.... if I understand it right, one of the forums sponsored by the paper brought in $386K in 6 months while the 'talent' gets paid $25/week. Is there a union for bloggers? But between the changes being foretold by the PG and elsewhere, I bet there will be a few more media/bloggers in town pretty soon.

Someone at YearlyKos, I believe, suggested the bloggers unionize. It was an idea met with derision.

The AP ran a story on this which led to a wave of both pro and con responses across the blogosphere. The Denver Post still has a reprint of the AP article available online.
