Insight into the death of a newspaper…and the birth of the online generation

Written By Administrator On February 26, 2009

This might be oddly circular to some, but I’d like you to read a post by Robert Niles, the man behind Themeparkinsider.com, a Web site that helps people plan for their visits to theme parks, including those in Central Florida. Niles picked up on the flog’s story about Dieter Hannig taking a buyout from Disney. But that’s not why I want you to take a look at this post.

Niles was the editor of the Web site for Denver’s Rocky Mountain News back when newspapers were still patronizingly toying with online versions, waiting for the fad to pass. The Rocky Mountain News will close Friday.

Niles was also a pioneer in the sort of interactive online experience that many of us now rely on for news and advice. I thought you might find it interesting.
