HEISE -- The magazine Telepolis reflects on the perceived information needs of young people today. It's a fascinating read, written in German. Online translation tools make the essay easier to read but understanding German is the only way to really comprehend the main points.
The magazine article arose from a controversy following a low-cost regional tabloid paper in Frankfurt deciding to meet the information needs of "the iPod generation" by excerpting content from well-read blogs. The journos didn't ask the bloggers for permission and a firefight erupted.
More than 250 people had commented on the practise of scraping blog comments to serve a paid tabloid's needs before the owners locked down the threads.
