Press Gazette is dead – but the blog could live on

with 4 comments

Even though the Press Gazette publication is gone, it looks as though a part of it may live on. Martin Stabe aims to move the informative blog to his own site.

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.

  1. Thanks — There will be more than web links eventually, I promise. I am currently a bit distracted by the small matter of finding, er, a revenue stream.

  2. Discuss Journalism should be fine for the moment. It is hosted on an AOL server, so should probably survive even if the plug is pulled on the PG servers.

  3. […] Several people have noted that all I seem to be posting here are my del.icio.us links. […]
