Why is online news still such a miserable experience?

Why is online news still such a miserable experience?

Dave Winer asks a good question about the state of online news

Dave Winer:

We’ve been working on news on the web for 25 years, and given the bandwidth of the network, the power and capacity of servers, and the incredible devices we carry with us, that news on the net is such a miserable experience. Clearly something is very wrong.

I’ve been thinking similar things for the last few weeks. I’m always struck, in my training work, how many basic concepts of online journalism can still come as a surprise to many working journalists.

Why are we struggling with the forward momentum on this?
