Tuesday Afternoon Doom & Despair

[![Rolling thunderstorm (Cumulonimbus arcus)](]( via [Wikipedia](
Ah, the storm clouds are gathering. He’s some interesting posts about the coming print apocalypse I’ve been gathering over the last few weeks, just to add a little extra piquancy to Tuesday afternoon:
- [Internet Overtakes Newspapers as News Source]( – I believe that’s known as “the writing on the wall”… - [Online or Bust: Why 2009 May Be The Nail in Newspapers’ Coffins]( – a hard-headed analysis from Paid Content on the challenges facing the news business in 2009, and why there aren’t any easy answers. - [Another Round of Paid Content Nonsense]( – No, not an attack on the Paid Content site, but an explanation of why the “if we just charged for our content online” argument is wrong. - [Digital versus Print and Apples and Oranges Analysis]( – Kevin Anderson of The Guardian argues that the biggest problems facing the news business are their overheads – both the costs of the overheads traditional business models have allowed and the mountains of debt many publishers have built up.
