Ultimately I see newspapers as the past and soon will be gone and it will move to the web.

Subscription rates are down all over the place.

I just cancelled my subscription to the Winnipeg Free Press, because I can get all this news online!!

What do you think?

it'll probably live on but in different forms and with different applications

PRINT is the key word, you still believe paper news will live?

yes but the format will be different. There are and always will be people who prefer a hard copy. Maybe the quality will rise in order to make people more interested. The print runs will be smaller but higher quality. Maybe they'll find a way of printing moving pictures or holograms or something.... there'll always be something

There will always be a need for local advertising. A paper does that well. I use no national or big city papers. My local, 3 edition a week rag gives me local happenings and local sale papers. Something you can't get on the internet. It will be a long time before a network sophsiticated enough and hardware in homes is equally sophisticated to supply current ads locally. But it will come.

Websites read your IP address and do local ads.

sympatico.msn.ca has local ads for MB.

Isn't the majority of the work done now done on computers anyways? I have a frined whose father worked for the local paper, he had to go back to school to get trained in the software.

I KNEW IT!

You were going to make comments about the poll!

Polls don't seem to bother other people.

Are you anti polls?

Polls, as Diefenbaker said, are for dogs. Everyone knows the average person is a liar anyway.
