The more things change

Peter Osnos has a nice piece in The Atlantic about the evolution of the book industry:

In newsrooms, you got the story, it was printed in the paper, and then you went home. In publishing, you acquired the story, got it written, had it printed, and then—crucially—figured out how it should be sold.
