Press Gazette is dead – but the blog could live on
I’ve met Martin on several occasions and he’s one of those people who ‘gets it’. He largely single-handedly, brought a wave of innovation to the PG website and his weekly commentary on how new media meets traditional publishing is always a worthwhile read.
Martin, good luck for the future and I’ll keep reading as long as you’re publishing, even if it’s only your weblinks! 🙂
(The other area of the site I enjoyed was the AOL-sponsored Discuss Journalism. The Press Gazette hosted discussion area is seperate from the AOL one of the same topic, which is confusing, but I hope one of them stays around.)
I can’t help but think there is a dark, foreboding irony that the newspaper industry’s trade magazine should fold at this time . . . What could prove to be a metaphor for newspapers across the land has just happened in microcosm with Press Gazette’s hollow death. And it all happened with barely a shrug.
