On the podcast this week (our second ultra-svelte 3×5 edition), Kyle and I continue our discussion of newspapers, journalism, and the need for new business models as the industry moves forward. Here’s a summary of the topics at hand:
- Kyle blogged about how the way we consume news in today’s world doesn’t leave much room for serendipity
- I listened to This Week in Tech and heard a story reported on Forbes.com about a dramatic influx of journalism students at major universities.
- Benjamin Cardin, Democratic senator from Maryland, has proposed the Newspaper Revitalization Act. What newspapers (if any) could benefit from a nonprofit business model?
