Retweet: CJR posts epic story about the San Jose Mercury News and its failure to seize the digital future

Michael Shapiro has written an epic post about the San Jose Mercury News entitled The Newspaper That Almost Seized the Future.

For someone who worked in the Bay Area at a daily newspaper it is a story that is particular interest to me, though the same story could be written about the Chronicle or the papers in Contra Costa County – all of the were in a position to seize hold of the future and all of them have failed miserably in that task.

At 16 web pages, though, I would suggest that using Instapaper to save the story for reading on your tablet over the weekend.
