This NYT piece caught my eye and made me smile, particularly this observation by a Journalism graduate:
"Newspaper people are too pessimistic," he [Diego Sorbara, who is graduating shortly from the Missouri School of Journalism] said. "Part of the nature of journalism is to adapt to your surroundings. We can't all stay in our ruts. If you get into this whole spiral of, 'Woe is us, the industry is going down,' then it will go down."
I'm not going to say a word, beyond suggest you get a copy of today's AFR if you still can. Big report on the newspaper fightback. Contains juicy, fightback-type quotes like this from APN executive Brendan Hopkins: "Newspapers are not dead and will never be dead."
I chatted briefly to Cameron Reilly today - he's gonna have a field day on this one.
