Mediamorphosis, the giant mudslide, and today's articles

Alvaro Vargas Llosa writes about Mediamorphosis
In the old days, they used to call it choice and freedom. Today we call it murder. But nobody killed the newspaper. It's just that information, which used to flow from the top down, is now starting to flow from the bottom up.
The giant mudslide
And no, it has nothing to do with politics:
Java villages drown in mud lake; volcanic mud, no less:
Peer over the canal wall and just metres away the fields and buildings are covered with the sticky sludge, which has been streaming from a fissure in the earth since early June.

Also via Barcepundit: Mine your own business
Mine Your Own Business exposes the dark side of environmentalism. The documentary hacks away at the cosy image of environmentalists' as well meaning, harmless activists.

Their answers are often disturbing, with racist overtones, but we, in the west, blindly support such campaigns that want to keep people in poverty. Now for the first time "Mine Your Own Business" asks local people about their lives and what they want for the future.
