Ah, Irony

By - October 11, 2009

I’m very much looking forward to the tsunami of work slowing down – Web 2 is ten days away, and my partner is starting Monday at FM – because there’s just so much stuff that I’d like the time to think through, and spending the weekend doing it is not that great for family life. High on my list of topics, however, is the current donnybrook between The Entire Media World and Google. Last week media titans met in China and the CEO of AP, in particular, made a point of excoriating Google (adding “blogs” and “Facebook” to the mix for good measure). I was reading up on this topic on the AP website, which is hosted by Google. Ah, the irony.
