    Is that story -- and that plan -- actually repurposed from something in 2005?

    "Information Center", "Bolting"

    Same old useless bullshit slogans for the same old bullshit plans in which always translate into "Do more with less."

    People still haven't figured out that John Paton is selling snake oil?

    Paton, Steve Buttry and Jeff Jarvis. The three wisest of all the three wisemen.

    That story touched them all. The hat trick of digital media.

    I always thought the purpose of those long Sunday pieces was to surprise the reader. And to give the reporter(s) time to get the big picture before writing, rather than what the New Times alt-weekly chain used to call "the hurried fact-finding" of daily newspapers.

    Silly me.

    Here's the issue I have with Paton. It's the martyr act. As if everyone wants our business to fail -- that's what you'd get out of reading his blog linked a couple posts up. As if someone dare have the nerve to ask him where the money is.

    Can't help but think these people are being brainwashed.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall the first time deadline is blown for the paper and one of the newsroom folks say, "But, but, we were bolting!"

    The only bolting they should be doing is finding another job.
