This is what I want: "We are developing an entirely new platform for community news and information by connecting paper to the internet to create what is believed to be the world’s first internet-enabled newspaper." Ross Dawson also offers an interesting point: "Tablets similar to those of today will be given away for free and digital paper which has all the qualities of today’s paper plus the advantages of digital at a low cost will be the alternative." It's a bit of a race. What will be least valuable soonest: the content (which wants to be free), the platform (which may end up cheaper than paper), or the advertising (which people will still ignore)?
