I fully believe that we are watching history in the making and that the printed newspaper as we know it is an empire crumbling. Unlike just a few years ago, there actually may not be too many people left who disagree with this (especially not among those reading this blog!)

Just like the demise of analog electronics, the rise of Google, the fall of Microsoft, and the private-sector takeover of space colonization, the death of the newspaper is only something we will come to understand and truly appreciate in hindsight.

In the meantime, no shortage of opinion is being written regarding this historic demise.
