A Catalyst to the Evolution of Newspapers

Slashdot is currently featuring a story by OSTG‘s Editor-in-Chief (and my former boss) Robin ‘roblimo’ Miller titled A Recipe for Newspaper Survival in the Internet Age in which he answers the question “How do we [the newspapers] adapt to the Internet?”

You’d think, with all the smart people working for newspapers, that by now most of them would have figured out how to use the Internet effectively enough that it would produce a significant percentage of their profits. But they haven’t. In this essay I will tell you why they’ve failed to adapt, and what they must do if they want to survive in a world where the Internet dominates the news business.

Interesting read for anyone working as a journalist or reporter, on or off the Web.
