A Dinosaur Adapts

Cullen, Kevin

Nieman Reports;Winter2006, Vol. 60 Issue 4, p7
The author discusses the implications of the Internet for the newspaper business. The emergence of the Internet as a medium of journalism resulted in the decline in newspaper circulation. He describes his appointment by the German cultural organization Goethe-Institut to be the U.S. correspondent for a Weblog they set up to chronicle the World Cup matches in Germany in 2006. One of the advantages of the Internet can be seen in reducing the length of the blog. The author also argues that the piece he wrote for the blog is much better than the newspaper story.
