Ryan Sholin knows newspapers

Brilliant post by Ryan Sholin on the newspaper trade and what those in the industry need to recognize in order to save it (and themselves). [via Jeff Jarvis]

One of my favorite new friends this year is Rob Curley, self-described Internet nerd and VP Product at Washington Post. Anyone with any professional interest in online news needs to get to know him.

With folks like Rob and Ryan, there’s hope for those of us who grew up with some newsprint on our fingers.
