It’s been kind of a tough day. Our cat Riley ran outside last night and we can’t find him today. We’re hoping he’ll find his way back. Already have flyers up, food outside for him. It’s raining now, so hopefully he’s got the sense to make his way back before he gets soaked.
Anyway, here’s a link to a piece in the Observer about interns working at a newspaper that has to be considered a canary in the coalmine-esque piece about the state of print journalism. It’s not optimistic at all, I’ll say that.
One can only hope print media can eventually make the turnaround. Esquire’s got a very cool concept coming for its September issue – an e-ink, interactive, battery-powered cover that will last for 90 days on a single power source. Pretty interesting stuff, can’t wait to see it.
