independent vs. corporate content

John Gruber waxes eloquently about independent content in today’s Daring Fireball. He makes a lot of good points about the goals and means of independent vs. corporate content (and not just on the web). While his categories of “independent” and “corporate” imply a pigeon-holing that is pretty strict, his observations about content and audience can be applied to the advantage of corporate publishers as well. More on this later once I’ve had a chance to study on it a bit more.
