Warm Thoughts on Web Feedback

Listening to Leo Laporte on his final TWIT of the 2008 year, the crew had several comments about the feedback they see and receive on "back channels" -- that is, chat rooms. They had several comments about the "yelping" of America.

When a little time presents itself, I'll share the following with Laporte.

Leo -- the reality of sports media is the essentially negative nature of the internet. Fans don't take the time to come to a chat room when they are happy. When they're happy, they celebrate among themselves. When they're upset, they are motivated to do some, to complain. Whether we like it or not, the internet is an essentially negative medium.
