My brilliant sportswriter friend Joe Posnanski (author of the best blog in the history of the Internet) asked me to write something for his other blog, on the future of newspapers. I have pretty much made a vow never to go to another conference or workshop about the future of newspapers, because it all ends up sounding like a meeting of Depressions Anonymous. When somebody figures out the future of newspapers, drop me a line. If I ever figure it out, I promise y’all will be the first to know.
Anyway, I may have blown the assignment, because it’s not so much about the future of newspapers as the future of stories. Take a look and see what you think.
