‘Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable’ — Excellent Blog By NY Prof

Here’s a link to an important, long-term view about the demise of newspapers in the era of “cheap copying” of content.  The author is NYU Professor Clay Shirky, written on his blog. http://www.shirky.com/weblog/2009/03/newspapers-and-thinking-the-unthinkable/.  It’s getting strong feedback from the reader comment section there, and also has been privately circulated among my old friends from the newspaper business who witnessed/participated in the early attempts to adapt that he describes.
