Newspaper Circulation Decline Continues

The decline in newpaper circulation has not only continued but accelerated a bit. Expect this not so surprising news when the Audit Bureau of Circulations releases the fall newspaper circulation FAS-FAX report on Oct. 30 according to an article over at Editor and Publisher.


Population increasing.  Newspaper readership declining.  This will not only mean a shift in advertising dollars, but over time it will create a substantial shift of power and influence in local communities.  Because of wealth combined with a strong media voice, publishers of local newpapers have exercised a lot of influence in their cities.  As the decline of newspapers continues, this power is going to move. 

I think it will not only move, but be diffused.  The connectivity of the internet is allowing more empowerment of individuals and onine communities than ever before.  A government of the people, for the people, and by the people is more of a reality now than it was when our forefathers penned the concept.  It's becoming more of a "we" world than a "me" world.

That's a good thing.

Biz Cliches

Fast Company has an interesting article on business cliches. 


Some of my favorites are -

"Think outside the box..."
"Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater..."
"Be a team player..."
"Process driven..."
"We're unique..."  (Yeah, I know, just like everybody else)
