A special, it's-too-nice-out edition of The Lineup
The Lineup collects the media stories, big and small, that are on our radar each day.
Somehow the day got away from us. Sadly, we even missed I Want Media's annual Future of Media panel at N.Y.U. (Something tells us there will be another panel about the future of media soon enough though!)
If you want, you can watch this video of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett throwing newspapers around. But really you should just get yourself outside now.
And here are a few links before you head out for the weekend...
