Findings: further fragmentation

Dave Morgan at Online Spin suggests newspaper companies should break apart to focus on different services: local news, distribution, printing, and ads and marketing. (Found via the Future of Newspapers blog.)

My friend David Cohn has earlier suggested that newspapers become less “products” and more “services.” Somewhat related is a post from ReadWriteWeb that suggested that turn around to some extent. They would help people not just find information, but also help them be found, such as with advice on attracting an audience for their videos.

Findings: Should Do This

Via David Cohn: Should Do This is essentially an open suggestion box. So far, there are only two entries for newspapers — to include links within online articles and to cut down on the paper editions.
