The Google View on the Future of News

... It’s not necessarily what you think.

This article by James Fallows in the June issue of The Atlantic offers a very interesting and surprisingly upbeat view of the future prospects for serious journalism. It explores potential paths through the current business challenges facing the news industry and sheds light on how technology can enhance substantial coverage and context, rather than undermine it in favor of dumbed-down, superficial content. It’s a very lengthy (it is The Atlantic, after all) but insightful and worthwhile read.
