The Future of Print Publishing and Paid Content – Publishing 2.0

The Future of Print Publishing and Paid Content – Publishing 2.0:

“Most of the discussion about the future of print publishing and paid content centers on the content, which makes sense, but the content hasn’t really changed that much (despite the emergence of some new forms) — nor do I think the value of content has changed in the minds of content consumers, e.g. people who value journalism still value it — their numbers haven’t diminished as so many fear.

What’s changed radically is the value of DISTRIBUTION.”

This is something which is often forgotten about the internet: it is both a new medium in itself, and a distribution medium for some very old forms of content (words, pictures, videos).
