My Interview with The Canadian Press

newsI got an email from a reporter with The Canadian Press. Here's a bit of what he had to say:

I'm working on a story about the state of and future of citizen journalism, including blogs and hyper-local sites, and would like to talk you. I'm interested in hearing from you about your blog's evolution from a small personal web site to a widely-read blog that's broken some stories before the mainstream press.

Now that's a subject that speaks to me. I conversed with the reporter this afternoon for about 45 minutes and I'm told the article will hit the streets some time next week.

We'll see how many of my fantastic quotes hit the cutting room floor this time...

Wow Mike, you're claim to fame eh. Boring whitebread dude has to advertise someone paid attention to him.

Guess what, most of us don't give a shit dude

Good for you, Mike!

Irvine, if you could take your head out of your ass you'd see that social media is redefining communications as we know it.

Looking forward to reading the article - thanks Mike.

Someone's jealous!! And yes, you do give a shit- seeing as you read it, and posted, and will likely read the story when it comes out. Be happy for him that someone simply wants to talk to him, because he's not likely making any profit off of this site anyway.

Why does Irvine hate that you were born white? What is so wrong about being whitebread? You sling it like a horrible insult.

So Mike got interview about a popular blog. Why is that so bad?

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

I'm told next week. The way CP works is they create the content and media outlets who syndicate their content choose to run the story or not.

So we'll see!
