Atlanta on My Mind

Angela Tuck, the public editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, interviewed Jay Smith, president of Cox Newspapers. which owns the AJC. Smith says Cox plans to be in the news paper business for a long time to come and offers this strategy for survival:

The most important thing for us to do is pay attention to the world around us. The world has changed a lot and [newspapers] have changed a little. Now we're changing a lot.

The Journal-Constitution is one of the papers participating in Tomorrow's Workforce and has done a terrific job focusing its newsroom on new initiatives designed to moved the paper forward. Read about that effort here.

Dear Mr. Porter-I am sorry to read the web page is slowing to a crawl. I am interested in reading AND writing. I never thought I would say when I was your age. Yada, yada..? I am sad you are not appreciated by the nano-minded and nano-mannered youth. It's the 60's without acid. The new designer drugs are the iPod and Myspace. True to life, the me, my, and iGeneration is turning off and tuning out.
