I few weeks ago I posted an entry called Peercasting as the New Western Frontier. In short, it asks whether the easy access the Internet has created to self expression formats such as blogs and podcasting may not be providing the same sort of safety net for ideas and opinions as the Western frontier provided in the early 19th century for those seeking self-made opportunity.
Clearly others are thinking along the same lines. Editorial cartoonist Jeff Danzier captured in a whimsical panel a hint of what I am proposing. You can see the original here.
