Replace ‘mp3 blogs’ with ‘the internet’ and it still sounds daft.
The Hype Machine‘s Anthony Volodkin did a bit of judicious editing on the ‘MP3 blogs are killing music‘ article in the Guardian blogs that I mentioned the other day. He replaced the words ‘mp3 blogs’ with ‘the internet’, and found that it pretty much continued to make just as much sense as a piece of writing — and just as little sense as a coherent, informed argument.
It makes for entertaining reading and really shows up the whole, laughable, ‘sky is falling’ reactionary tone.
When will people learn that insisting things be the way they used to be is not a survival strategy? Adapting and overcoming, as one friend puts it, is the only way forward.
