Best Digital Analogy of the Month

Since the month is coming to a close, here's my choice for Best Digital Analogy of the past month.   

David Carr's New York Times piece from SXSW (March 11, 2012) about establishing a Code of Conduct for Content Aggregators.

"O.K., you  can almost hear the digerati seizing with laughter at the idea that a pew full of journalism church ladies is somehow going to do battle with the entire Internet."

For a few days following, debate and commenting about what constitutes aggregation on the internet erupted.  It seemed to culminate in a outright refute from HuffPo.     This battle is far from over.
