So: It’s a new year, and that means it’s time for a new start. I hereby resolve to write a new post at least once a week. I’d really like to do it twice a week, but I’m afraid to make that much of a commitment. So I will aim lower.
In other news, it’s been a bad week for newspapers. Now it’s the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that’s in dire straits, and could possibly shut down for good. It’s depressing. However, I read something interesting in Atlantic Monthly on how the New York Times can stay in business. Of course this could apply to any newspaper in today’s world.
Michael Hirschorn’s column, “End Times,” even sees a Web-only New York Times as possibly providing better journalism than the current print version. I just hope there is a Web version.
I am sad to think that someday there will no longer be printed newspapers to read, but I have come to terms with the inevitable. As long as they survive in some form, I’ll be content.
