These Times

I am very optimistic about print as a technology... Imagine if we had been getting our information delivered digitally to our screens for the past 550 years. Then some modern Gutenberg had come up with a technology that was able to transfer these words and pictures onto pages that could be delivered to our doorstep, and we could take them to the backyard, the bath, or the bus. We would be thrilled with this technological leap forward, and we would predict that someday it might replace the Internet.  --Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute; former CEO of CNN and managing editor of Time
On the flip side, The New York Times announced today that they will stop printing the newspaper and will be fully digital by the year 2015...
