In the internet world we now have a lot of people podcasting (myself included often with Cosmic Comics Conversations panel) and a ton of nut jobs (me included) blogging and writing my own critiques of comics and other odds and ends. If we counted all the bloggers, podcasters and "news" reports and columnists who make comics there main theme (or even a major sub theme) is there anyone who has time to read all that we write?
Even better yet if our group is as large as I think it maybe and we each have a few loyal followers can we make an impact on the sales of an individual title?
It would be interesting to see, but it is amusing that we are always critics of what we watch or read, but with the advent of the internet we all are able to put make our voices heard louder than before.
Which in a roundabout way leads me to a question that was posed to me today. Has technology improved our lives or detracted from our lives?
As with any such question the answer is yes and no, but on balance I think we may have lost more then gained.
