Mr Gillmor --

You may be also interested to see that my local paper, the Santa Fe NEW MEXICAN, has started a blog:

Carmi Levy

This is exciting stuff, and definitely something to watch.

It is clearly being driven by the demographic reality of today's newspapers: namely, young people don't subscribe. Because of the evolution of new media, the hallowed place that old media held in the minds of our parents (namely, that everyone by default subscribes to the newspaper) has not been replicated in today's youth. Their messaging environment is significantly different - and much more interactive - than it's ever been before.

The Greensboro initiative seems compelling for anumber of reasons, chief among them that it isn't simply a blog tacked onto the newspaper's web site. It's a cultural shift, and one which editors and publishers everywhere should be watching very closely. I know I will.

Thank you for once again zeroing in on the stuff that matters. Well done.



And thanks again for squeezing us into your schedule, Dan. The feedback I got from participants was overwhelmingly positive.


I'm one of those overwhelmingly positive comments. Great job, Dan, and thanks for taking the time. I wish we had more time to talk. Well, perhaps in another medium....
