Park Slope Tractor Story: From Dope on the Slope to the Times

When we read the story in the New York Times on Sunday about the farm tractor in Park Slope, we had the nagging feeling that we'd seen it before. But, we consume way more information than we can retain so we couldn't put our finger on it. Today, we know. One of our favorite blogs--and one from which we wish we'd hear more every day--posted an item this spring about someone he'd photographed in Park Slope "lovingly maintaining a jim-dandy 1946 Ford Ferguson farm tractor." NYT reporter Jennifer Bleyer e-mailed Dope and tracked down the gentleman, despite the fact that Dope didn't know his name. The morph from blog entry to NYT story says a lot about the interconnectedness of old and new media and the way that more and more stories that first surface in the blogosphere make their way into "traditional" media.

Pretty cool, we think.
