Dead Trees Dept.

How will the news business survive? From the look of it, Dave Winer doesn't think there will be a news business. At least not a corporate one:

Enough of this How will the news business survive? mess. That's not the question. The question is How can we make news work much better given the new realities? That's a great question and the guy who answers it is the next leader of the news business.

The answer will not come from a corporation.

The way I read his piece, there will continue to be journalism, but it will not exist in the same form we have now. That said, I hope we find a good, sustainable way to fund and protect journalism of the classic shoe-leather-reporting variety. Web searches and opinion pieces are by themselves not journalism, and I say this as someone who has confused and conflated the above too many times myself.
