Amazon.com launched in September of 1995. That’s a little over ten years ago. A lot has changed since then, but one thing is certain: everyone saw the changes coming. So as we watch traditional media struggle with new paradigms, I have wonder why contingency plans weren’t being developed back then.
Because it’s not just the new media model that is affecting change in old media: it’s the world we live in. SF Weekly has a story about a local station hitting hard times, and the station is coping with changes.
