Hypebot's Kyle Bylin recently interviewed Greg Kot, author of "Ripped", a book the analyzes the effect of the Wired generation on the record industry. Earlier this week in an article titiled "Another lesson for the news industry from the record industry", Shane Richmond of the UK's Telegraph named Kyle's interview "worth reading in full", but said that one paragraph could serve as a lesson to the news industry:
"That’s not only a good analysis of what went wrong with the record industry," wrote Richmond. "It’s also applicable to all content industries. The challenge they’re facing is the shift from being gatekeepers, controlling the flow of content to the customer, to becoming curators, helping customers find what’s most relevant to them."
