A few days ago EL PAIS published an article about its director, José Moreno where, during the XII Congress of Digital Journalism in Huesca, he exposed that "in a few years, the paper version of newspapers will be over".
Well, he didn’t say anything new. In fact, we all have heard this kind of opinion or even thought about this sometime. But this time it was José Moreno, director of one of the best newspapers in Spain, an expert , who affirms this. So, we definetly should get used to this statement. And not only to the statement, but to the phenomenom in it. Yes, it is probable that newspapers really disappear.
Of course, there's always the opposite version, like when television appeared and people said “the television is going to end up with other media...and it didn’t”. It us true, but this time is not only a prediction. Statistics do show that. As Moreno said during the conference, "even the assiduous consumers of press of some years ago, are giving it up". But attention, they are giving up press, "not information!".
Now we have to face it. It's like renew or die. The future is no longer in the papers anymore, but in the web.
