Weekend Reading

This is one of those "I told you so" articles by someone in the publishing business chiding his collegues about how the Internet has changed the publishing business. My favorite section is:
The article is aptly titled "No Pallets Required" as the genesis of the commentary was how much time was spent at a recent Folio: show discussing postal rates.

1,900 newspaper jobs lost in 2005. Gosh, could people be reading the Internet sites, blogs, getting podcasts, satellite radio, huh? What I always think is funny about these stories is that many of the same companies that own newspapers have massive investments in broadcast, telecommunications, and new media. But someone just never told the people in the newsroom...... And of course, God forbid any other company lay someone off... it's splattered all over the front page of the business section...

Another newspaper article that has a good overview of the business in Q&A format
