I've been seeing this more and more-- WSJ has an article in it's paper version today that talks about Spyware programs. Awhile back, I read about these in my Web travels and found some good software to prevent against spyware on my system-- Spybot is the name of one of the good ones. It seems that by using RSS and viewing blog link consolidators like blogdex, I am slightly ahead of the traditional news curve. It is as if I am getting news unfiltered, directly from the source, and the newspapers and tv news follows up a few days later with the same stories. I wonder when this will break down the traditional news media because their features no longer are relevant to their viewers.
