Sitting at the Jazzdor Berlin festival over the past few days, something really occurred to me about why the internet is winning out against printed newspapers and magazines more and more. It comes from being struck by Sebastian Scotney of Londonjazz rushing out of the gigs, just before they finished, so that he could post his review by 1 a.m. on the same night. Similar actions came from
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent."
Perhaps it's too late for the newspapers and main magazines to recover the ground? Actually, they probably don't even want to. And they set up their models of the press and complain incessantly about the internet. Which is, for me, a great shame. I love physical books and newspapers and would dearly love them all to survive. And to go out and buy them again. I have fallen out of love with the newspapers as they are at present.
