About Me

  • I've spent more than 25 years at the intersection of traditional and digital journalism. I've helped to invent ways to read and interact with the news and advertising on computer screens and iPads, and before that, I wrote news stories on typewriters and six-ply paper. I co-founded WashingtonPost.com and hyperlocal pioneers Backfence.com and GrowthSpur; served as editor of Philly.com; taught media entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland; and have done product-development and strategy consulting for all sorts of media and Internet companies and startups.

I think newspapers are sitting on a tremendously valuable market that they can not only target with local advertising (their specialty), but also with unique user interests (based on indexing/meta data). I write about this here: http://themediaage.com/?p=21 .

Robert Kuttner said in CJR that print and online revenue will meet in the middle in 2020. That's much slower than you're predicting, and it seems a little slow to me, too. He doesn't attribute the prediction, which is disappointing. From Kuttner's piece:

"With Web income soaring and print revenue basically flat, analysts expect the lines to cross within fifteen years. By about 2020, if current trends persist, half of a newspaper’s income and most of its readership will be via the Internet."
