Hasn't he heard of Facebook, Twitter? Nothing is as pitiful as "journalist" whining about the old days when there are more outlets for their craft than ever before. Is it a high paying professional career track anymore? Nope, but that's because the elite acted as gatekeepers. I remember a time when getting a letter to the editor of the local paper published was special. Having an article published in a magazine was resume worthy. I don't remember a time before the "golden" age of journalism, but there were dozens of papers in major cities, and even multiple ones in small towns. Not quite the internet, but I'd rather have anarchy, than go back to mornings papers and CBS news between 5:30 and 6:00 each night.
School districts just don't have the expertise to deploy technology. Not even able to evaluate tech and request the help they need. You have to spend a year teaching the teachers, helping them develop curriculum, testing the infrastructure.... But all the bosses want to do is stand by kids holding iPads and get their picture in the paper. Just wish they'd run the picture again today.
