Insightful and spot-on as usual.

When I saw the recommendations last week from that SRG report, I just about had steam coming out of my ears -- it's the perfect advice. For 1995. CPB should never fund a study like that one again, since we have plenty on the shelves already.

I've been too busy with other stuff to blog on this yet, and now that you've handled it so masterfully I probably won't bother (it's like following a better comedian -- who wants to do that?).

But the core message I would give to station is that the relationships of network to stations and the relationships of users to stations and networks are being completely reshaped, and the ways we act, interact and collaborate have to change, too.

Ugh. Too much to say, but even now I have to run off to do some other stuff. Meanwhile, thanks for the thoughts, Stephen. I only pray people start listening. You've been a beacon of good ideas -- and proven digital media success -- since I first heard you speak back in 2005.
