The fate of the newspaper

9 04 2009

TEDblog interview with newspaper designer Jacek Utko:

Many people think that newspapers have to survive because they have a mission for society, for democracy. Most of them say that newspapers should stay because, if newspapers die, nothing will replace them. But that’s not actually true. It’s already slowly being replaced by the Internet. Blogs, for example, are an opinion-making medium. They’ll probably become more powerful than the newspapers were.

Just before newspapers die, they come to highest possible level of development.
