Social Currency

Jack Shafer theory: newspapers are crumbling because they are no long the primary social currency; i.e., they're not the source for the things we talk about day-to-day. It seems true, in at least some sense, that my friends and I spend an equal amount of time discussing a blog post or a tweet or a Facebook update as we do newspaper stories.
