Pig Chat is Coming But Meanwhile...

If you have a fast connection, this eight-minute talktalk about the future of news and news organizations is provocative, both exciting and disturbing. Who was it said no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people?

Here, by the way, is where I found the above link in a Poynter post by an old Chronicle colleague. He says the New York Times -- and I am assuming "elite" journalism in general -- needs more juvenile humor. If this is true, I may stuff myself into my old newsroom uniform, sharpen my pencils, dab some shoe polish on my temples and return to the game of games.

Or as Dave Barry has said so often to such powerful effect:

It's booger time.
