The New York Observer did an interesting piece a few weeks ago that asked how organizational design influences the news-generation process. One of my 37 unfinished book proposals actually looks closely at this idea by analyzing how media companies organize themselves spatially and hierarchically. (If this sounds uninteresting to you, then you have a better insight into why all these book proposals are "unfinished.") This general notion has been on people's minds recently because a) several companies are trying to converge their online units with their traditional print/broadcast units, and b) the New York Times is moving into a new building (which makes Khoi giddy). Anyway, this post has no point, except to say: I wish writing books was easy.
