A conspiracy of everybody
: Dave has a conspiracy theory:
Here’s a social software smart mob concept. People should vote for Howard Dean because he made such a fool of himself on national television. Here’s your chance to blow up the media monopoly.
The only problem is, weblogs went far crazier about Dean’s craziness than big, bad media did. The difference is that it worked its way through the gastrointestinal tract of blogs a lot faster than it could through the slow, slogging production of big media. The Star-Ledger assigned me to write an op-ed on the topic days ago; it appears today. And we’re sure to see the Scream on the Sunday-morning shows because they think a week at a time while weblogs think an hour at a time. In this case, big media and nanomedia all reacted the same way to Dean — the right way, I might add — but just on a different biorhythm.
