What's Old is New Again

As the lines between old media and new continue to blur, major players from both sides are switching teams. Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post, Pierre Omidyar lured The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald to his new media service, First LookMedia, and Vivian Schiller recently left NBC News for Twitter. What value do technology titans see in partnering with veteran talent? Is it even possibly today to separate media from technology? What can be gained from the continued integrationof these industries?
