Poli-Babble: It's becoming pretty clear to me that I'm likely going to vote for Gore next month, but I fear that Bush will ultimately win. I look at it this way: I'd prefer Gore to be our next President, as I think he'd be the best choice for the country as a whole, but I also recognize the fact that I would likely benefit more from Bush than I would Gore considering my income level, tax bracket, and monetary investments. For me, it's a conscious decision I need to make: Do I vote for the candidate who I think is best for the country and economy, or the candidate who I think is best for me?

The most dangerous of these mistakes is continuing to equate publishing with broadcast. The broadcast mentality colors nearly all corporate assumptions about the conduct of business overall. It is so deeply ingrained that its principles are taken for granted-universally accepted axioms that are transparent to the point of invisibility. Effective publishing is about delivering relevant information to the widest possible audience, right? Wrong. In the era of the Web, publishing will only be effective if it conveys suggestive stories that elicit discourse and debate from the most knowledgeable and tightly focused communities of interest.
