Paul Ford: 'The web is not, despite the desires of so many, a publishing medium. The web is a customer service medium. "Intense moderation" in a customer service medium is what "editing" was for publishing.'

It might be that from the view of a "potential business" modeler but then again, that by far is not the only possible view. i do not think that anybody but mr. jobs ever seriously thought it was a publishing medium.

I think it was a publishing medium. And still do.

I agree with TOBI. Computers are so much like the publishing industry, the parallels between watching a TV show/movie and surfing the Internet are that both contain scripting as a source. The web has source code script and movies have screenplay scripts.

@ both before: i might have used term "seriously" in a devious way. i am sorry for that.

if publishing is a slightly assymetrical thing from the beginning, inner workings in analogous transmissions in metallic wires and on top of electromagnetical waves did force a division into symmetrical telephony, mostly on wirelines, and heavily assymetrical broadcasting, mostly on invisible waves, now shannon's work and moore's law have put away with all of these limitations. alphabets tend to assymetrical publishing and spoken language tends to symmetrical conversation. the web integrates all of this stuff, so the confines get blurred. publishing is but one (potential) thing on the web as is service and are many other things. sure b-l made the web for publishing but that set of tools soon moved elsewhere too and markets are a lot of other things besides being a kind of conversation and conversations are lots of other things besides being able to function in a or as a market. nevertheless sometimes simplifications do not throw a blinding light but can work as a kind of enlightenment. however, i kind a liked that erroneous statement, it taught me something.
