Having done a few other CS mods, I know abit here and there about the history of  general journalism (the penny papers yada yada) so I was quite curious about the history of online journalism. I chanced upon two quite interesting articles, one is about the history of online journalism in the UK, the other about it in the US.

Strongly recommend you guys to take a look through if you can, especially the second link (I liked the history of online journalism being a history of ‘class struggle’ between media owners and end-users for control of the ‘forces of production’ – very Marxist!)
