DJ Journo Jeff suggests (en Francais) that the journalist is a DJ. I like that. It’s a bit less haughty than what I’ve been saying lately: The journalist is a curator. Curators work in stuffy museums where they control everything in sight and tell people where to go; they package their world, like a newspaper, in a box with a bow. DJs work in the cacaphony of a dance floor, which is more like life. It’s up to the folks on the floor whether to dance to the tunes the DJ sets.
