The Bivings Report wins Award of Merit
Congratulations to The Bivings Report for getting the Award of Merit in the business category at a SNCR gala recently.
Read the post over at The Bivings Report, and give them a pat on the back. There are a few interesting tidbits from the post author as well, from the gala. Like this comparison by Paul Gillin:
New media: Outsource everything, leverage free content, involve the community, go after niche markets, market virally, low overhead, few staff, new web creating a robust set of operating principles, little to no barriers to entry.
Old media: Large infrastructure, supported by very expensive advertising, increasingly relies on blogosphere for niche news content, broader markets, subjective editorial decision-making necessary, significant barriers to entry.See Also
