"We are closer now than ever to the ideal advanced by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, who said, 'the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.' These days, if you have something true to say -- and I mean 'true' here broadly: not just 'truthful' or 'factual,' but also 'truly funny,' or 'truly moving,' or 'truly beautiful' -- this new digital world empowers you to communicate it to anyone, anywhere, regardless of medium. You don't need a printing press. You don't need an antenna. All you need is a way with words or sound or pictures and a library card to use a computer." -- Meyerson, 2006
