Zeldman and the Plague

The End Of The World As We Know It – Zeldman analyzes the Plague. ”Lost in all the hand-wringing over this temporary (there, we said it) market readjustment is the mediums unchanged essence. The Web is peoplealways was, always will be. The Web gives everyone from the isolated single mother to the small company to the self-publisher the means to connect and communicate. That hasnt changed.”

Nor has the fact that a lot of Big Business still doesn’t get that. They think the web is dead, since it didn’t play by their rules. Zeldman thinks, ”Bye-bye, Big Content. Adieu, global agencies. Thanks for stopping by. Now step away, and let those who’ve always understood this medium take it where it needs to.”

And pass the ramen noodles.
