We live in a time of unprecedented access to entertainment, news, information — even to each other. But that access requires navigating a digital labyrinth, with toll booths, hidden doors, gates that only open in one direction, false exits, and misleading turns — along with some clear paths and dazzling topiary. I wish I could say that will get easier in 2013. It won’t. And if there’s one prediction I feel safe in making, clarity isn’t even in our mid-range future.
Why? I explain as part of the Nieman Jopurnalism Lab 2013 predictions project. (Thanks for including me, Josh.) Lots more on a variety of topics from much smarter people.
