We probably should have mentioned this by now, TNS is hosting a table at the National Conference for Media Reform in St. Louis this weekend. We would absolutely LOVE to meet any TNS readers and PeoplesNetWorks members in attendance. Please do make a point of stopping by and introducing yourself if when you get a free moment.
Speaking of which, I'm going to continue my little crusade against Google News' nefarious plans to squeeze independent news organizations out of its search results, as I ranted previously. A British site that covers issues concerning online journalists called dotJournalism did a story on it that plays a nice counterbalance to the E-Commerce News version that I thought underrepresented the arguments I've been making. It's funny to see how differently the same story can be covered by industry press -- one aimed at commercial types and the other at journalists. It occurs to me that the folks attending the NCMR conference might be very interested in Google's plans to highlight the biggest media producers at the expense of us little folks.
