Once upon a time, Galen Gruman was a journalist. The one-time president of the Computer Press Association is now an Apple Fanboy. Is that content marketing?

Jeff: You have written a food for thought piece. I am a citizen journalist and I have become an Apple fan boy (engaged in a Mac user association in Gothenburg, Sweden). I started out with Microsoft and I still defend this company, I then tried out different versions of Linux, until I got introduced to Apple with my first iPhone (I have had Nokia, Siemens, HTC, Blackberry phones) and then my brother (who has worked with Commodore, Amiga, Linux, BeOs, Microsoft, etc.) game his old (black colored) MacBook.

I don't have much appreciation for the average mainstream media journalist, but I think the forthcoming content creation will work out in the future, with hybrids of bloggers and traditional journalists. Right now, the biggest newspaper (with a circulation of >500,000 copies) in my hometown, is fighting for its existence...

Hejsan Martin, I worry about the blurring of lines between content and journalism. In this country the media has become so segmented that it's possible to never read or see a political opinion that you don't agree with, which leads to a really warped version of reality. Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I wish more media were viewed as a public trust, not a profit vehicle.
