Could this be the new newspaper business model?

Knowing that we’re living in the midst of the greatest shift in communication ever, doesn’t make it any easier to deal with the angst and sadness when things like the Hearst Corp. announced Monday that the Seattle Post-Intelligencer will print its last newspaper edition and become exclusively Web-based as seattlepi.com, making it the nation’s largest daily newspaper to move to online only. Newspapers are toast.

From Shorpy.com (one of my favorite sites) comes this photo from Brockton, Massachusetts in December 1940. “Men and a woman reading headlines posted in window of Brockton Enterprise newspaper office on Christmas Eve.” 35mm Kodachrome transparency by Jack Delano.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
