Hear, hear

Someone said to us the other day: "You do know print media is dead, don't you?"

In a word, no.

Exhibit A, to balance the flood of doom and gloom print media stories: A scheduled global gathering of print media advocates in Spain next month for the World Association of Newspapers conference on Power of Print.

A WAN news story says "Those who advocate the abandonment of print for a digital-only world might want to look at the roster of speakers assembled by the World Association of Newspapers" for the Barcelona conference May 27 and 28.

The story says "
WAN is bringing together leading industry figures who are proving that publishing success comes from developing the print side, not abandoning it."
