"In Defense Of Slow News "Many years back, I remember seeing Michael Arrington, the founder of TechCrunch, being interviewed about that site (which at the time was on its way to becoming the first "mainstream" tech news blog). I'm paraphrasing​ and possibly misremembering, but what stuck with me was that he suggested that, as a blog, you basically had to focus on one of three things to succeed: being first, being funny, or being insightful."

(Tech Dirt) for the full story.

JP Says : I like the idea of ‘slow news’ … and now I know it isn’t one of Arrington’s three legs for success in blogging, I like it even more.
