Almost as if ...

... you were there: CJR Panel: The Case of the Vanishing Book Review. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I was not there. I was editing book reviews.

    My question is, how come there's this many registered bright guys so clueless?

    What are they going to do? How about finding jobs with internet publishers and communications providers? What a thought. How about - do the same things they do now for the paper and ink world, but do it for people bright enough to know that 20-somethings read online, write online, flirt online, and play online.

    Seek entertainment online? What a thought. And 30-somethings too? Hey, I know guys over 60 who read more book reviews ONLINE than they read anywhere else. No one has asked them to pay 35 cents any day they want the service tho', so maybe they'll stop when they're asked, who knows.

    I know sports websites that charge $30 per year to read their pro writers. Do those writers have editors?

    "What are we going to do about this situation?" Adapt. Or die. Elite or everyman, it's always the same. Adapt. Surely registered bright guys have a leg up on that process, right?
