Newspapers and Digital Media

"When a 14 year old kid can blow up your business in his spare time, not because he hates you but because he loves you, then you got a problem."

Gordy Thompson, retired Internet services manager for the New York Times

Thompson was referring to the fact that a 14-year old who was a big fan of the writer Dave Barry was posting Barry's columns on usenet and violating the syndication agreements that had been established in the era of print media.
