The Internet in 10 years?

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by WaylonJennings, Feb 22, 2008.

  1. We talk a lot around here about newspapers 10 years from now. What about the Internet? Clearly it's not a "fad," which it seems some people thought it was in the mid-1990s (just as television was thought to be so in the '40s).

    The bottom fell out once already about 10 years ago, but 10 years from now, will the people at Yahoo! still be writing there for their good salaries? The guys and gals at ESPN.com? Sportsline? What about the recruiting sites, Rivals.com and Scout.com, which have added some newspaper talent over the last couple years and will likely continue to pursue it as they branch out beyond just recruiting?

    Or will everybody be trying to get back into traditional media orgs, which will have figured things out by then?

    They will have changed the name of the internet to the gan-nett. It will have lots of pretty colors, short stories and no one will make more than $27.5K a year.

    Maybe we'll have more ads asking about who's hotter, the Jonas Brothers or Zac Efron. If we're lucky.

    what makes you think traditional media orgs (newspapers in particular) will have it figured out by then? Seriously.

    Internet hasn't been easy for some paper chains, apparently.

    In 10 years the Internet will be renamed Microgoogle after Microsoft buys Google for $10 trillion dollars.
