Bob Garfield Gets It.

Here's a link fromJeff Jarvis at BuzzMachine to Bob Garfield's audio essay on the future of media. Pretty smart stuff. I really like the basic point — everyone always talks about the bold, grand future without talking much about the taxing slog through the mud on the way there.

I think there's an added bonus if you take the time to listen. Even though the link isn't in podcast form, Garfield's piece is a good model for podcast production. The length of the essay, the production qualities — I think there's a lot in it that will form the basis of good podcasts in the future.

Maybe we should have two levels of media...targeted "user involved" and mass "take your chances" communication. Then let the advertisers decide who they are going to go after. No one ever said the world was an easy place to get your message across. I "need" some advertising to help me with my consumer choices. I just don't want to see all of it. Let me choose. Isn't that what democracy is all about anyway?
