Joi Ito does a blogcast on CNN about his op-ed and he’s amused that the CNN blog team saw his piece first not in print but in a blog (this one). I did similar blogcasts on MSNBC a few months ago, though the new smell has worn off that toy for them. FoxNews turned up its nose at the less-than-perfect broadcast quality (insert ironic joke and snicker here) when I suggested it more than a year ago. Now CNN is trying it out. Good. The smart network will realize that this is a new way to hear from new voices in no time at no cost. Someday, one of them will listen.
