My media week 14/03/10

I am very interested in all the developments in publishing. This week I found a couple of interesting ones: NPR had this interesting podcast No Ink, No Paper: What’s The Value of an E-Book?  And The New York Review of Books has this piece: Publishing: the Revolutionary Future.

The Cato Institute has a stimulating book forum where they discuss: Don’t Blame The Shorts: Why Short Sellers Are Always Blamed for Market Crashes and How History Is Repeating Itself

 Reason.com has a feature on glamour: Virginia Postrel: Glamour, Politics, & Voter Expectations.

I liked this Onion feature: Man On Internet Almost Falls Into World Of DIY Mustard Enthusiasts. In their Brief news section they had: Mytron The Fifth, Illuminati Ruler And Secret Overlord Of All Humanity, Dead At 112. And onTwitter they had  Bandai Recalls Lady Gaga.
