Something to take your breath away

At least, it did mine when I read it.

In the May issue of the Delta Sky magazine, there was an article called "All the News That's Fit to Byte" by Timothy Harper. The article is about the nature of the NY Times in print format, and where it may be in a few years. This is a debate that's been going on since I was in journalism school at the very beginning of the internet craziness in the mid/late 90's. But, what, you may ask, actually took the breath out of me? This:

"'I believe that as we add new media, we don't abandon the traditional ones,' [Mario Garcia, the consultant who oversaw the redesign of The Wall Street Journal] says. However, Garcia admits, 'In five years we will have the first group of adults who won't remember life witout the Internet.'" (Emphasis mine)
