The pile on to declare print (newspapers) dead

Print is dying, proclaim many web folks, and you know what? When it comes to newspapers, they’re pretty much right–industrial grade paper just isn’t the medium of choice for news anymore and reporters aren’t the only people who can cover events and provide informed perspectives.
Having said that–and added another log to the pyre of newspaper naysayers and cynics, let me also add that I think magazines–my beloved addiction–are in a really different position and may indeed flourish as newspaper decline.
The best magazines are finding ways to marry their web and print, their community and paid coverage and creating wonderous and interesting hybrids that newspapers can match.
Why do magazines work and newspapers don’t?
More in my next post, later tonight.
