MIT Communication Forum

Three programs are worth highlighting from MIT's Communication Forum under the umbrella theme “Will Newspapers Survive?” The series is designed to address the ongoing transformation and apparent decline of American newspapers. Weighing in on the subject are working journalists, media critics and scholars, and digital "visionaries." Topics to be addressed: the aging of the newspaper reader, the emergence of citizens' media and the blogosphere, the fate of local news and the local newspaper, and news and information in the networked future. Programs in the series are: The Emergence of Citizens' Media; News, Information and the Wealth of Networks; and Why Newspapers Matter. Each can be viewed in full at the MITWorld site above.
