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?
