WPNI Celebrates This Special Day By Not Firing Anyone Until Tomorrow
(WaPo: WTF is an "internet year?" Oh, and Slate: that cake-thing is fucking CREEPY. )
Happy ten-year anniversary of terrified stabs at relevance in the face of plummeting circ and influence! Let's celebrate with smug self-congratulation! The future of media, you say? Someone get Jay Rosen on the line! Let's pat ourselves on the back for realizing back in '96 this whole internet thing would be huge! Hey, remember when that brilliant guy had that awesome idea to put news and opinions on the "World Wide Web?" Who could've known that now, ten years later, we'd still be trying to figure out how the hell to make money off of it.
