Michael A. Banks

I'm still reading lots of harcopy books. Fewer magazines. I've been playing with Kindle PC.


Like you, Joe, I'm doing more tweeting and less blogging—and reading fewer blog posts. And I hear the same from lots of my editor colleagues.

Kent Anderson

I think this is generally right, but it also seems to hint at shifts instead of fragmentation. I think fragmentation is going to continue, and hasn't reached its plateau. The idea of short-form being preferred is a good example of this. Yes, for some modes of information consumption, but for commutes, exercise, train trips, and airplane flights, long-form content is still preferred, be it podcasts, books, or playlists. As to modes, Twitter is great because it provides a quick discovery mode, but I usually find long-form content on the other side, be it a long video from TED or a long blog post. So, let's not oversimplify. Things are going to continue to be fragmented and complex, IMHO.

Kimberly Davis

I still like having all of my blogs and magazine reading together in one place, on my Kindle, and updated without my having to think about it. But you are right, I have my iPhone with me more often, and end up defaulting to that on a regular basis. And I agree that twitter has changed blogging. Now I do my short form blogging on Twitter, and my blog posts on Kim's Craft Blog (about writing) tend to be longer and more in depth--and less frequent.
