Very Important News: “Newsweek” is no longer published in print version

Friday, January 25, 2013

I consider the decision of the Newsweek publishing group to exchange paper for the “cloud” to be quite relevant. Given the immediacy and speed of these media, a lot of news is logically disseminated through information technologies. But I still think that at least some news merits being published and preserved “physically” in print form.

I don’t doubt the capacity of virtual archiving or availability in the “cloud”… but I still think that a total replacement of printed media should be undertaken with caution, and with special care for those matters that must survive the passage of time as essential referents to guide the steps of future generations.
