Um dos mais requisitados ‘profissionais do prognóstico’, Clay Shirky, disse, numa recente entrevista ao Guardian, o seguinte sobre o futuro da Imprensa:
The great misfortune of newspapers in this era is that they were such a good idea for such a long time that people felt the newspaper business model was part of a deep truth about the world, rather than just the way things happened to be. It’s like the fall of communism, where a lot of the eastern European satellite states had an easier time because there were still people alive who remembered life before the Soviet Union – nobody in Russia remembered it. Newspaper people are like Russians, in a way.
