Roy Greenslade on Newspapers

Journalist, academic and blogger, Roy Greenslade is in Australia touting his message that newsprint is on its deathbed. In arguments that parallel those about the death of the book, Greenslade is adamant there is life for journalism beyond print on paper. As he says in an op-ed piece in the SMH:

As an unashamed digital revolutionary I can see that we are in the process of moving from one news platform to another. The stagecoach is giving way to the train. The great change does not spell the end of journalism itself.

Words that should come from a geek like me, not a 44 year veteran of the journalism trade 🙂
