(Back to) the Future of News


It was a pleasure chatting with Garry Trudeau once again at this year's National Cartoonists Society convention and awards ceremony in Jersey City, NJ.

Previously, and more seriously, on the topic, the Doonesbury creator said:
"I don't believe there's anything I can do personally to prepare for a post-newspaper future, other than hope that the large media companies will come to their senses and form a gated Web collective along the lines of cable TV. They need to form a news utility, financed by subscription or micropayments because going it alone has been disastrous for all of them."
