I still get pitying looks from media friends when they hear I’m a blogger. In their eyes that makes me about as worldly as a practising Druid. At least they don’t call me a member of the pajamahadeen - but that’s only because they’ve never come across the word before. Perhaps I should e-mail them some of the coverage of Rupert Murdoch’s speech on new media. Jeff Jarvis has plenty to say, while Terry Teachout looks at the implications for arty types. Even Le Monde is all abuzz. But then the Old Grey Lady of Paris is already au fait with these things.

PS The Guardian's Emily Bell strikes a more sceptical note.
