Media disruption: search & aggregation v creation

Scott Karp has kicked off a nice little debate on the question of the media's future, (as in 20th century publishing and broadcasting models, will they survive?).
"The once monolithic media industry is undergoing a radical schism, dividing itself into content creation, on the one hand, and content aggregation and distribution on the other."
Some agree, and some disagree. The great thing is how informed this discussion is. It ain't just dinosaurs roaring about how they still matter. It's people who care about the industry trying to figure out what's happening to it.

Plus - BRW's newest flagship edition launched last week. It's called Australia Online, and somehow the cover story made it on to the AFR's new website/application thingy.
