Perhaps ironically this author could have made their point in a much shorter article. I have no issue paying attention to something long that I feel is of good quality.

I mean if you’re writing a blog to get found by SEO you’re doing it for capitalistic reasons and to think you’re above the same capitalistic demise of ‘journalistic integrity’ is just narcissism at that point.

the written word is dead, said a guy on the internet.

Our attention span is being robbed and that’s true, but it doesn’t look at all like what he’s describing.
