If you read the techlash that has taken over media coverage of the net and society, you're likely depressed and counting the days to the armageddon. Why the sudden hostility from the same journalists who not very long ago were predicting Utopia? But wait. Take a breath. The internet did not suddenly turn us all into oafs and louts. No, we are not all hermits in filter bubbles. Let us look for causes for optimism: the voices never heard in mass media now able to speak; the continuing need and demand for quality journalism; the countless new means for journalists to serve communities. Guaranteed: you will leave this session whistling a happy tune.
