Mark Evans, a former technology writer now running a digital media consultancy, weighs in on the transformation and diminution of newspapers in a new post on his site.
As much as he loves newspapers, he doesn't think it matters if they go away. But he does identify changes he believes will come in the transition to a digital platform:
1. A multiplatform, multitasking newsroom of journalists.
2. A more affordable class of journalists.
3. A focus on local news.
