From the third part of my future-of-journalism series:

"And it is a process. It's important to stop thinking of journalism as a series of one-off projects. Stories are updated, corrected and discussed — essentially forever.

"Journalists create an ongoing relationship with their stories and their readers."

From my 100th Common Cents column for News Photographer Magazine: "What I'd like to see is a major metro having the courage to pull the plug on its print product and sell the presses. Although gross revenues will be lower at first, the elimination of the massive print production and distribution costs will still allow significant profits. That is if management is savvy enough to improve the product by rolling some of the expense costs over to the newsroom."

Cleaning out the festering wound that is the print newspaper industry is the subject of my essay in The Digital Journalist.
