Online-only newspapers face uphill climb


Some newspapers and magazines have abandoned their print operations as a way to cut costs — most notably the Seattle Post Intelligencer, Christian Science Monitor and Blender magazine. What are the consequences when publications move to online-only? Some clues can be found by looking at Taloussanomat, a financial publication from Finland that stopped printing to focus on digital operations in December 2007.

    It’s about time that they catch up to where the people are consuming their content. I don’t miss having a pile of paper in my house, and love the fact that I can get the information I want to consume pushed to me realtime as it happens to my multiple connected devices. Not to mention we don’t need to cut down millions of trees everyday and waste energy recycling papers. It’s the ultimate green movement.
