"Paper is a high-resolution, high-contrast, unbreakable and extremely inexpensive display device." Michael Rogers

Michael is the new futurist-in-residence at The New York Times Company. Patrick Phillips interviews Michael...

Rogers: It's unquestionably the business model: how to generate revenues online that are comparable to what our traditional businesses yield. We have lots of ideas about how to tell stories online, and we're beginning to accumulate substantial and devoted audiences. The next step is making sure that the new digital realm generates the dollars it will take to support quality journalism in the years to come.

Whether it's the owner of a small business or the CEO of a major ad agency, each one needs to hear clearly and repeatedly that a new spirit and voice has taken root in the radio industry."

Well said Peter. Read the entire writing here
