My biz and big boss: newspapers’ digital apostle
John Paton prepares for a world without print


The style, literary quality and work ethic of the 1950s; the technology of the 2010s.

Fine with me: I’m already on it. Field story leads by e-mail, drive around my beat, meet interesting people who tell their stories and do their things, video them, drive to the nearest café or library and create! Beats proofreading pages for 26 hours at a time.

No jet packs or moon or Mars colonies in ’11 but no more newspapers. Funny how these things work out.
