If there's one thing the media loves to talk about, it's the media. Faced with a genuine innovation such as The Daily, you can bet pundits representing both the old guard and the new will be weighing in on the implications of the new venture well into its existence.

Just don't listen to anyone who claims The Daily represents journalism's last hope. If there's one thing we've learned from the evolution of media, it's that the opportunites for producing and delivering news are multiplying, not shrinking. You'll be able to follow the saga of The Daily in print, online, on air, and, of course, on your iPad.
