Publishing industry doom?

Wednesday, November 24, 2004

On Wired's Newspapers Should Really Worry, are some disturbing numbers on where print media is headed. I've always argued that reading print vs. online is more of a generation issue, but eventually, online (or e-ink) will dominate. What I find amusing is that many people in the publishing industry don't see the impact this will have in the next few decades.

The advertising industry will probably start suffering first, as it scrambles to find creative ways of reaching the 18-34 year old demographic and slowly starts moving away from print.
