Michael Wolff understands new media. He understands that information has become devalued, that if someone wants to find something they can, that the gatekeepers of old, to use Jeff Jarvis's favourite term, can no longer control what people can and can't read. He even gave a speech about it recently:
I first gave the "information wants to be free" speech 12 years ago... I gave this speech and everybody said no, no, no. You're crazy, content is king... Well, we all know that they were wrong, that I was right...
A profound change has happened. The ecology of information has altered, and virtually nobody (at least nobody who has a job) has been willing to really examine the implications of information flowing not from its usual source but from so many other sources. The implications of one person having this remarkable control. I mean, that's the reversal. It used to be that if you were an information provider you had control. Now you have no control. Control has absolutely passed to the consumer.
It wasn't an interview. It was a talk I gave that somebody recorded and then transcribed. Beyond being purloined, it was poorly transcribed, unedited, and not meant to be a piece of written work, so I asked that it not be published.
But doesn't he know that you can't unpublish information any more? If you still want to read it, the transcription is here. Just understand that it is poorly transcribed, unedited, and not meant to be a piece of written work. (BTW, I made the decision to host the page myself, and I've posted it on my personal site, not on MemeFirst.com. If anybody's liable here, it's me, and no one else at MF has anything to do with this.)
