    All fascinating stuff, isn’t it.

    The arguments, particularly from Shirky, are a little well rehearsed but it feels as if it’s happening for real now.

    A lot of local papers are definitely dying. It *is* happening, Though I guess inertia and other business models mean that the big papers will survive. And maybe experiment their way to new success. (eg . The Guardian)

    Shirky’s been rehearsing his arguments since the mid-90s so he’s thought through most angles. I think Carr is clever but fairly wedded to his own traditional blinkers. But he’s certainly the most interesting sceptic.

    So how come you’re suddenly blogging all this stuff. Are you teaching something along these lines now.

    I’ve been teaching this stuff for quite a few years now, just turning over a new leaf on the blogging front …

    My name is Amber Crouch. And I am a professional academic writer with many years of experience in writing.

    My main focus is to solve problems related to writing. And I have been doing it for many years. I have been with several organizations as a volunteer and have assisted people in many ways.
    My love for writing has no end. It is like the air we breathe, something I cherish with all my being. I am a full-time writer who started at an early age.
    I’m happy that I`ve already sold several copies of my poems in different countries like France and others too numerous to mention.
    I also work in a company that provides assistance to many clients from different parts of the world. Students always come to me because I work no matter how complex their projects are. I help them to save energy, because I feel fulfilled when people come to me for writing help.
