I Wish…

Lot’s of lists floating about at this time of the year. This one really caught my eye. Adam Penenberg has penned an pretty interesting list of what he hopes will happen in online media during the coming year.

I was really intrigued for by the first two. The challenge of copyright and licensing of content will be one of the defining issues of the coming year. Looking at Google’s news portal – as I do each day – it strikes me that most of the publications will be overjoyed with the visibility Google gives them (I mean it’s not like I was visiting, Radio Free Europe, or the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner). But it will be a defining issue for the big guys.

The second concerns the evolution of blogging. His second para is something I’m especially conscious of. Too many blogs, this one included, spend too much time ruminating on news rather than reporting, creating, or commenting on it. The great advantage of RSS is that I get to see what you have to post when you have something meaningful to post. Frequency isn’t the issue. Expect to hear less, but more from me in the New Year.
