Panel: What Happens to Newspapers?
28 October 2008 (Lansons Communications, 24a St John Street, London EC1M 4AY)
Chairing a New Media Knowledge panel event on the future of newspapers
At this event we considered how newspapers can survive falling circulation figures and spiralling ad revenues. And whether new media has led to their destruction or will help reinvent and rejuvenate the format.
The event was filmed. A link to the edited video will be posted here in due course.

For the event I created a Newspaper Issues Map to present an overview of the factors that had created the current situation in the industry, the current responses, and possible futures.
