Future of News: Jarvis nails it again

Jeff’s eloquent on newspapers, as in future of news in this long post about some European innovators and the usual crowd back here in the states. A snippet:
“Our task is to stop seeing old failings everywhere and start seeing all the new opportunities before us, to exploit the future and expand news, to exhibit a passion about the possibilities, as Rafat Ali told the Online News Association. And we must accept the reality of the marketplace and stop wishing it wouldn’t change.”
“From a business perspective, we need to stop whining about readers moving online. If that’s what they want to do, then go with them, damn it!”
(You know, Jarvis was my boss for a while, and not only was he just as smart (and sharp) back then–he taught me a hell of a lot–and still does.)
