“Imagining” the Future of the Newspaper

You may have heard that the San Francisco Chronicle is likely to go into bankruptcy, and sooner rather than later. In response to that news, a group of people have constructed a “Post-Chronicle” wiki and, as a group, are trying to “imagine” what a new newspaper could look like.

So far this consists of public discussions of how to manage content, distribution, and so forth. Sounds kinda like all those communal “counterculture” collectives from the 1960s — but hey, the future’s gotta start somewhere! Check it out here.

Tip o’ the mug to Alexis Madrigal, who can be found here and at Twitter, which is where he “found” me (although I have no idea why.) (But I’m glad he did.)
