Britannica forum: "Are newspapers doomed?"

Nicholas Carr puts out a call for student journalists to participate in an online forum sponsored by Encyclopedia Britannica entitled: “Are newspapers doomed? (Do we care?)” (Britannica should be asking “are encyclopedia’s doomed?” – ed.)

Of particular note, Britannica is soliciting the participation of student journalists. If you write for a college paper and would like to be part of the discussion, shoot an email to the Britannica at this address: blogs [at] You can find a few more details here.

The discussion just started here. Jump in if you’ve got the time.
