“Come with me if you want to live!”

Arianna Huffington offers a thought-provoking analogy to help rethink the endless debate between new and old media. I don’t usually just slap quotes up as blog posts, but I thought this one was worth sharing (thanks to Bev Crandon for flagging it):

The shifting dynamic between the forces of print and online reminds me of the relationship between Sarah Conner and the T-101 in the Terminator movies. At first, the visitor from the future (digital) seemed intent on killing Sarah (print). But as the relationship progressed and the sequels unspooled, the Terminator became Sarah and her son’s one hope for salvation. Today, you can almost hear digital media (which for some reason has a thick Austrian accent) saying to print: “Come with me if you want to live!”

(OK, now your turn. What does the liquid-metal-cop-guy represent?)
