Just off on holiday so I'll be a bit scarce around here for the next coupla weeks. Apologies to people who haven't had their emails replied to either. I've been really flat-out for the last few weeks.
I'll leave you with one quick unsupported thought. The majority of commentary that I've read about Rupert Murdoch's plan to charge for online content has been greeted with scepticism. A view that he may finally have made a commercial mistake.
I'd take a long article to argue it and I ain't got time to write it, but my conclusion would be different. I can't promise that it'll work, but I suspect that it will and that most professional journalistic commentators will be eating their words within three years.
If it does, it will underline the value of 'convening power' which Murdoch has in spades. It's a power that he should be stripped of for political reasons, but that's another matter altogether.
