About the Event
Dead tree media is crashing if not dying--major big city daily newspapers have closed in Denver and Seattle, newspapers everywhere are shedding staff and costs as fast as they can. Our panelists have extensive experience in leading some of the new delivery formats emerging on the web and will talk about these differences and what they mean for readers as well as businesses who need to find replacements for channels to their own consumers.
About the Speakers
Tom Foremski "In May 2004 I became the first journalist from a leading newspaper to resign and become a full-time blogger. I had one of the top jobs in journalism and I had never blogged. Yet I knew in my gut that the timing was right, and that the business of online journalism would continue to improve while the print business model would continue to worsen."
