JB: I am a French street photographer. Not a professional, but passionate about the city of New York, I have always lived in Paris but I consider New York as my refuge.

Ok. Enough quotes. Let's make ourselves an opinion.
the line between the reader and writer has blurred - and so have the distinction among tweet, blog post, facebook, newspaper story, magazine article, book, the line between professionals and amateurs, the boundaries delineating for-profit, public, and non-profit media, the line between old media and new media - practically beyond recognition.
