The Ebbing Tide of News in Print
Today I came across a compelling article about another newspaper going electronic and limiting their in print services to a couple of days per week.
As an author, I have been aware of the rising popularity of e-books and e-magazines. As a matter of fact, there is a myriad of electronic publications out there if you know where to look.
One person says that the paper printed word will be extinct within 5 years.
Others say that it will not happen for another twenty years.
Another interesting statistic I heard is that the internet will be more than 75% video content by 2016. Unfathomable, but yet......
What do you think about this?
