Dan is most articulate about this, thank gawd, because I can't seem to write or even talk about it coherently. (It's not as fun to gloat over the woes of mass media when your whole family is supported by it.)

What's cool here isn't the ideas, so much, although they are near and dear to the xarker heart. What's thrilling and a little scary are the actions surrounding those ideas. Most media solutions -- and, trust me, there are nigh-on desperate conversations going on all over the industry -- are still inside the current structure. Because, as Dan says so well, no one knows where the money will come from.

The hunt is on for the revenue stream, which is even more complicated for those who would like a little meaning and integrity flowing through it.

So, that's why I love what Mitchell and Farrah are doing. And why I love xark and all its participants and all my friends who think big. Oh, and it's why I get nervous as hell. The times they are a'changing and it's not clear who the casualties will be.


Wonderful and enlightening post, Dan. Loved visiting OPP as well. Any chance you get give us a brief xarker interview of the two of them sometime?

Wow. Wish I could be there.

Dan 1: They would sense my darkness and doubt, my ingrained, judgmental, third-person-objective POV.

Dan 2:

Accuracy: Blah blah blah.
The Military: Blah blah blah.
Translation: You media snobs are a bunch of queers.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
