Everyone should read the article by Lacey Rose over at Forbes. It mentions United Hollywood and quotes our own Kate Purdy--and it shows that we're getting the message across about what this strike is really about:

“We know that the future of the industry is the Web, and that in the near future television sets and computer monitors will merge into the same screen,” says Kate Purdy, a writer for CBS' Cold Case and a blogger behind a new strike-related writers' blog, United Hollywood.
