I mentioned in my last post the need for many voices in the debate on the future of journalism. The latest contribution comes from Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert. As he’s made what I believe is referred to as “an shedload of filthy lucre” from selling content, Mr Adams ‘s views are particularly interesting.
His opinion of newspapers? They’re a’ fecked. And it’s the mobile that will kill them. Adams does think there will be some newspapers and some professional journalists.
But not many.
