Why it is imperative for newspaper companies individuate their editions in print, e-paper,and Web formats.
My opening keynote speech from EPublishing Innovations Forum 2008, London, May 7, 2008. Why 1.3 billion people have gravitate online despite their already having access to mass media in much more convenient formats than online. Why the fragmentation of audiences is an illusion. Why traditional newspapers’ and news magazines’ circulations, and news broadcasts’ viewerships, must ineluctably evaporate. Why most newspapers’ and news magazines’ and news broadcasters’ Web sites won’t save their companies. Why people will be even better served by New Media than by Mass Media. And why the change today is even greater than that during Gutenberg’s era.

My presentation at Editor & Publisher and MEDIAWEEK magazines’ Interactive Media conference in Las Vegas last month.
In 1998, media executives involved with new-media and new-media entrepreneurs were on roughly the same level of sophistication about technology and new-media theory. But most media executives are still at that 1998 level, while the entrepreneurs are now eight years’ more sophisticaled. This difference, as seen in two recent conferences, was so striking that I’m still in shock. This drives to the heart of why periodicals have failed to adapt to the Internet beyond about 1998.
The major problem with online content isn’t lack of a business model but lack of tagging.
