Salon Kvetch-o-Rama I admire Jim Romenesko and his now-famous Medianews site. Tremendous conciseness, relevancy, good taste, apt use of <B>. (Glowing article in New York not online. Spectacular accompanying photograph. In effect, Jim is paid $80,000 annually to blog for a living.) Jim actually covers the Salon redesign of recent infamy (here), and mentions it en passant on his homepage. I had alerted Jim to our discussion here, but it looks as like Medianews and Metafilter are parallel universes on this. I wonder if combining discussions would make sense here and elsewhere. (Was that less than 500 words?)

And why shouldn't they be parallel universes? If anything, having these comments on MediaNews is going to have more impact, due to the stature of that site in journalism. Moreover, I found the comments (presumably selected by JR) to be much more incisive than the commentary here, which did tend to drift.

Different communities, different viewpoints. It's good to have separate discussions about some things.

Joe, you can read Romenesko's New York profile here. (blogged on my site, plug plug)
