Power has shifted to the hands - and keyboards - of a new army of internet warriors, variously described as bloggers, citizen journalists, trolls, tweeters and many other things. They do not have a boss and their name appears on no-one's payroll. Their activities can suddenly coalesce like a swarm of hornets and then just as quickly they are gone in their different directions. It makes the solid four walls of the Coventry Evening Telegraph look like a positive disadvantage, and the same goes for many other old media outposts, even though some have bent over backwards to embrace the change. I regret not seeing how big this was going to become in the early 1990s; or, come to think of it, the early 1980s, when my dad bought one of the first retail computers and I used the entire memory by typing in song titles from my record collection.
