how craigslist is killing newspapers

They might be killing them from a revenue standpoint, and I’ll agree that no revenue in any commercial enterprise equals certain death, but isn’t their lack of alignment with what “consumers” actually want killing them more.

"In the world of online classified advertising, Craigslist is by far the most used Web site in the United States," Pew said in the report. "In March 2009, classified sites averaged 53.8 million unique visitors, up 7 percent from February. Craigslist had 42.2 million unique visitors in the month of March."

I want news delivered by people I trust. I only want the news I’m interested in. It would be great if the medium could figure that out in advance. And I want the content to be as multidimensional as possible. Preferably it woulb’t lay in my drive for me to drive over, but come to me where ever I am.

To survive, the medium must change to suit the business model. Physical newspapers will be a rare few. Those in the cloud will continue to proliferate like rabbits.
