Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - The Future of the News Ecosystem

« How to Really Kick Ass | Main | Is Your Customer Conversation Built in? »


Great post. Inspiring. The transformation is grave, certainly. But when you think about it, newspapers only cost a quarter or two. Token fees like that could be requested, along with banner ads, and no hard copy production or delivery costs --- Why isn't this a viable proposition, a potentially profitable transition from newspapers to online formats? Why does the change have to mean disaster for the editorial tradition and journalism? The web is always hungry for ever more of that sort of stuff.

I like your part about "Is there a way to disagree respectfully? Or to offer something in its stead?" - so many times I see people bash others wrt news ideas simply because they HAVE to be right or else.

I'd love to see that eradicated too.
