Goodlinx – what Australia’s media and marketing bloggers are talking about today

From Ben Shepherd of Talking Digital:

“Why do some people within the digital media world seem to have such contempt for newspapers?  Is it because a load of them are wannabe print journalists that are pissed their endeavours aren’t covered by the mainstream print media? Possibly…”

From Laurel Papworth:

“I could keep blogging the print media demise. Number of newspapers closing, journalists being laid off, statistics and reports, diminished trust, diminished revenue, Citizen Rupert speeches, but there are those who insist we’re making it up, to propagate some kind of blogger war. Why ‘massive drop in newspaper ad revenue’ equals ‘WTF OMG you bloggers hate mainstream media’ I don’t know.”

 From Stephen Collins of Acidlabs:

“Those of us who understand social media and how it works are so excited by the possibilities we try to communicate to our clients (or whomever) about it in our language rather than their language.”

From Julian Cole of AdSpace Pioneers:

“I hate the word “s****l m***a”! It is just an iteration of what the web is at the moment. I am sick of using the word. All media is social anyway. I am going to stop talking about it. The web has always been social.”

Should objective journalists write opinion pieces? No, says Trevor Cook.

From Matt Granfield at Zakazukha Zoo:

“I’ve decided today is the day I count ads to determine how many advertising messages the average consumer is exposed to in a 24 hour period.”

From Margaret Simons of The Content Makers:

“Who outed Sharon Gould? Even as I type these words, there is a great deal of boasting on the blogosphere about who tracked down the Sharon Gould-Katherine Wilson link first. Bloggers, pull your heads in. It wasn’t you.”
