Attention news folk;This is for you.

Since I broke the story about the layoffs at The London Free Press, I have taken hundreds and hundreds of hits. I have fun blogging but there is no promise that I will tackle stuff of interest to those working in the news industry. Here is a link to a man whom I am sure you will find interesting and thought provoking.

Reflections of a Newsosaur

This blog is now in its 6th year. An accomplishment in itself. Here is a little about the author of Newsosaur straight from his blog.

Alan D. Mutter is perhaps the only CEO in Silicon Valley who knows how to set type one letter at a time, just like his hero, Benjamin Franklin. Mutter began his career as a newspaper columnist and editor in Chicago, starting at the Chicago Daily News and later rising to City Editor of the Chicago Sun-Times. In 1984, he became the No. 2 editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. He left the newspaper business in 1988 to join InterMedia Partners, a start-up company that became one of the largest cable-TV companies in the U.S. Mutter was the COO of InterMedia when he moved to Silicon Valley in 1996 to lead the first of the three start-up companies he led as CEO . . . He also is on the adjunct faculty of the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California- Berkeley, where he teaches a class entitled "Journalism in an Age of Disruption."

This is another good link, Fading to Black.

Cheers,
Rockinon
