Just a quick post to share three links on the future and past of newspapers:
- Chuck Peters, CEO of our company, blogs (with lots of links adding great context) about the past year or so at Gazette Communications and how we are trying to shape our future. He puts my Blueprint for the Complete Community Connection in context with current reorganization of our company.
- I wrote a blog post or two’s worth of comments (and others joined the discussion, too) on Jerry Bowles’ blog post The Internet is Killing America’s Free Press and Why It Matters (I disagreed with him).
- Howard Owens puts the decline of newspapers into thoughtful historical context, noting that it has paralleled the decline of civic engagement.
