How Jon Snow dissing the PlayStation 4 explains why no one cares you can't afford a house
At 42 years old, Charlie Brooker is settling into his middle age, but in the world of current affairs, where few male presenters under 50 occupy top jobs, he's basically a small angry child. At 66, Jon Snow is far closer to the likes of John Humphrys (70) and James Naughtie (62) at the Today programme, Jeremy Paxman (63) at Newsnight, Andrew Neil (64) at This Week and the Sunday Politics, or Question Time's 75-year old David Dimbleby. The few female presenters on these shows are allowed - compelled even - to be under 50, but current affairs output remains dominated by 50- to 70-something white men. This even extends to the pundits - a very small proportion of panelists on Question Time are under 40, and those under 30 are treated virtually as cultural curiosities to be gawked at or patronised. Owen Jones's TV career seems - through no fault of his own - to be predicated on the idea that by giving him a say, broadcasters have somehow ticked the 'under 30' box, as if one guy can somehow be the 'voice of a generation'.

Guardian editor forecasts 'vault of darkness' for The Times - Brand Republic News - Brand Republic
Rusbridger said: "I would miss print ... but if it means that print goes and Guardian journalism continues digitally, that's not the worst thing in the world. Our last printing presses [which were installed in 2005 with the switch to the Berliner format] - I had a feeling in my bones that they might be the last printing presses." Pushed by host Steve Hewlett for a date by which The Guardian will not exist in print, Rusbridger said: "I was thinking 20 years at that point. I think that might be telescoping quite dramatically now."

There would be a resounding silence. "Who can put in a call to Gordon?" another would cry. You would hear a pin drop on the editorial floor."

There are alternatives. I now see the battle between Apple and Google Android in clearer focus." : "@jeffjarvis Agreed on media apps, but iPad is also the greatest web browsing device ever, IMHO.

Lebedevs buy Independent titles to secure future - Press, Media - The Independent
Alexander Lebedev said yesterday: "I invest in institutions which contribute to democracy and transparency, and at the heart of that are newspapers which report independently and campaign for truth. I am a supporter of in-depth investigative reporting and campaigns which promote transparency and seek to fight international corruption. These are things The Independent has always done well and will, I am sure, continue to do."

Five Ways the iPad Will Change Magazine Design | New at Pentagram | Pentagram
“If digital magazines with rich, uncompromised, real-time content corner the market on delivering what you need to know right now, what’s the point of print? I think that the publications that end up enduring will be the ones that exploit what print alone can do. The best ones will be things that you want to save, not toss in the recycling bin. They’ll project a sense of craftsmanship and permanence. And each one should be an object that just feels terrific in your hand. If you’re spending most of your free-time holding an iPad, you just might welcome a change of pace.”

Emily Bell, director of digital content for Guardian News & Media, says: “It’s about whether you think your web presence should be closed or open. We’ve probably been unique in being ultra-open.”

Custom Newspapers from German Startup - BusinessWeek
At a time when more readers are going online to get their news and German newspapers are struggling under declining ad revenues, a new Berlin-based company announced its plan to beat the odds with a customizable newspaper venture last week. Readers can also choose to include content from 500 Web sites... build their own newspaper—although they are limited to choosing specific page... The customized paper is then printed and delivered the next day.

"the World Association of Newspapers has recommended these be a part of newspapers’ attempts to stay relevant: Newspapers could create as many niche products as they want, which can be distributed in many ways: electronically via email, in pdf format, printed at home, or distributed as an insert to a traditional newspaper. The idea is to build many ultra-niche products.”
