With the blogosphere and the tweetosphere all atwitter about e-revolution, some old-school ink-stained wretches weigh in. Bruce Beattie reminds us that brutality’s twisted logic is as ancient as the stoic Sphinx. Matt Bors savagely concurs, and beats up on the fired-up, wired-up, smugly self-congratulatory. Matt Davies aims closer to home, tweaking a new-media doyenne for making bank, even as her e-minions toil for nothing more than the chance to have a voice.
