Iconic images from newspapers

Originally uploaded by krstnb
Yes, the media landscape is changing. But it hasn't all changed yet, as the interest and demand for printed newspapers chronicling this historic election has demonstrated. You all know what the demand was like at your paper; here's a video made from front pages around the nation that also underscores that point.

    A video, yes a video, of newspaper pages hosted at Flickr of all places.

    How telling.

    My daughter was at the Charlotte Observer to meet with a photographer that is acting as her Senior Project mentor. She said it was crazy with people coming in and buying the paper for it's historical significance.

    NPR the next morning said 15,000 extra copies were originally ordered, but then a second order had to be put in.

    I recently crossed the Rubicon, as they say, to the all-online journalism world. However, you don't get rid of the decades of ink that runs through your veins overnight. I was THRILLED that newspapers were back in demand, even for a day. Seriously.

    However, I just checked the MNI stock price - now below $2 a share, headed toward less than $1 share. This is alarming. This means MNI was three times more valuable when I left this summer. The market has decided this company is just about worthless. How do you recover from that? Can you grow ANY business as penny stock?
