Goodbye Print, But Hello What? 

Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine has written a quite useful op-ed piece in Sunday's Philadelphia Inquirer called “New technology offers solutions”. It discusses the very rocky transition from print to online media which is taking place in all areas of journalism, and has many print cavemen in denial.

Although Jeff has written elsewhere that he dislikes sports, nonetheless his comments on journalism and technology are important to all. Much of the boxing world in particular acts as if the days of the predominance of the daily newspapers will somehow come back, just like Rocky Marciano and Sugar Ray Robinson will once again fight in Yankee Stadium.

Even though print journalism is being eclipsed by the Internet, once in a while they still produce a winner. The cover story in Rolling Stone called “The Worst President in History?” has a classic cover:

Of course, it took almost all of the mainstream media for one historical and cataclysmic disaster after another, from Iraq to New Orleans, to come to this conclusion. The battles against the influence of the corporate and political liars will no doubt continue in the age of Internet journalism, but at least the technology provides the public and the truthtellers with an easier means of communicating with the world.
