  1. It is refreshing and a little anxiety-provoking to read about the massive changes that are taking place in the newspaper industry.

    I say refreshing because it’s apparent that something had to give with the widespread use of the Web for information; it’s refreshing to see that many newspapers are making changes before the death bell tolled for them.

    It is anxiety-producing in that for those who have been in the newspaper business for years or decades, the changes probably don’t come easily to them. They are now in a position of being mentored by the up-and-coming instead of the other way around. Since this is contrary to established practice, I can see where it could induce anxiety.

    Good luck to all and best wishes for success.
