My heroine fix…

If you get a chance, check out Ellen Goodman’s column today. She’s meditating, in Goodman style, about the disbandment of facts in the burgeoning build-an-opinion-first-make-up-facts-to-support-it-later Web 2.0 world. An excerpt:

There is a sense that we don’t need science or editing or fact-checking as long as we have crowd-sourcing. We don’t have to build opinions on facts; we can build facts on opinions.

Enjoy your weekend. Mine’s shaping into an busy affair. Can’t wait to check out the Christmas Ship Parade sneak-peak, scheduled for Saturday night. Music, art and charity also on the menu. Looking — and feeling — like snow, too. Brrr…
