The day after ... a welcome
September 13, 2007 - Rob Weaver
Today is yesterday’s tomorrow.
It’s the day when The Advertiser-Tribune takes another step into its future. People sometimes ask what the newspaper of tomorrow will be like. It is becoming more apparent that it won’t be a newspaper.
Gone are the days when a newspaper’s Web site was a online version of the print edition. The A-T’s new Web site is more than a newspaper delivered digitally instead of as ink on paper. It offers greater access to state, national and international wire-service reports, and a more interactive format.
We hope you will take the opportunity to set up your own account and take advantage of the interactive features. At the same time, you will take part in the developing future of the delivery of news and information.
You see, the Internet itself really isn’t a medium as much as a delivery system. The ’Net allows information to be disseminated in a variety of different media. The World Wide Web isn’t just a communication system; it’s a way of keeping everyone interconnected — instantaneously.
As this wired world of ours becomes increasingly connected — and wireless — The Advertiser-Tribune will keep changing right along with it. We feel the Internet is perfect for our brand of community journalism. It’s anybody’s guess what the future will hold for news reporting (feel free to add your guess at the end of this Web log).
Remember, today is tomorrow’s yesterday.
