Media glare, media shifts

Posted By on June 10, 2009

I’m in a fashion spread in today’s Plain Dealer. I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails about it. It’s fun to be in the spotlight.

It’s also fun to wear stuff I really like, particularly these days, when I spend a lot of time at home and there’s no need to dress up to go out. Putting on rock ‘n’ roll clothes is a special gas.

So is being part of a section that’s one of the liveliest in the paper; I thank Kim Crow, who puts together the Wednesday fashion section, for her words, Scott Shaw for his photo.

Although I no longer write for it, I still read the PD. Even though people routinely trash it, I value the good stuff it does. I value newspapers; I write for the Boston Globe, which is shrinking fast, like the PD.

The link to my spread will eventually die off. I’m glad there’s a hard copy in circulation, at least for now. I wish I had the answer as to how newspapers will evolve—if they survive.

    That link won’t die off — at least not for a long time. While some versions of our stories still do fade off the site, anything that has a comments space at the end is part of the material we post using blog software, and it remains on the site permanently.

    Thanks. Good to know.
