The times they are a-changing in the world of print journalism. In April the Christian Science Monitor will be the first national newspaper to switch from print to a web-focused format. The Oregonian is leading more people online as they stop daily distribution in Eugene-Springfield and other towns around the state. Then there’s the likely demise of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the lively discussion about a post-print version of The New York Times. As all this news goes online what happens to journalism? How do consumer habits change? How much of the news do you hold in your hand and how much do you read on a screen?
