Quebec's La Presse to scrap weekday print edition to focus on app

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Remember when people said newspapers would never disappear because people would always prefer paper? "You can't read a computer in the bathtub." Remember that? La Presse is a major newspaper in Canada. "It is too costly to sustain both the print paper and digital initiatives, and that cutting printing to one day a week will save La Presse $30-million annually." This after making investments of more than $16 million to get it off the ground. They will soon be digital-only. It won't be long before the print version is the rarity and the electronic version is the norm - this applies to newspapers, magazines, and books. Paper publications have maybe ten years left. Max.
