How can you tell a Net-trends piece is a vast expanse of crap unaccented by fact? Let’s see: 1. It’s in the New York Times.
2. You read it and wonder how long the original sat on the shelf and when the random “update” examples were stuffed in.
3. It quotes Jason McCabe Calacanis, the little publisher that couldn’t. (Notice the source on that link; the Times’ confusion of Jason’s fortunes with those of the Net is nothing new.)

Of course, I’m personally perfectly content to let the Times yammer. Keeps them out of folks’ hair while we move onward.
