Like Fallin’ Off a Log

It’s been about two weeks since Amazon introduced its “Search Inside the Book” function, and already, we’re witnessing a change in journalism. Take, for example, this unsigned New York Times Week in Review piece that wrote itself simply by going to Amazon and typing in Santa+Ana+winds.
Writing articles hasn’t been this easy since the advent of The Internet Movie Database.

Wow, you’re right! Whittling down references to Santa Ana winds to a manageable 10,882, that Amazon feature practically wrote that story itself. Boy, you really speak the truth to the power of those lazy boneses at the New York Times!
