Let's hear it for eMprint

Blogs, citizen journalism, online editions ... ah! All of these new outlets/methods for journalism are almost too much to keep track of these days. Everything is designed to help readers and newspapers connect. And the technological changes are designed to save costs while also reaching the new (and younger) tech readers.

We are in the middle of some pretty dramatic changes for print news. Could it be that 10 years from now the traditional printed product is history?

While you are mussing on that thought ... now comes along another option (actually, this option has been out there for a year or two). Developed at the Missouri School of Journalism's Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, an eMprint version of a publication can upgrade the way news content is delivered online to readers. The product is eco-friendly, it can contain audio and video, can be done in full color, and it is designed specifically for the computer screen, not a broadsheet.

So far, the product is getting rave reviews from readers of the Columbia Missourian.

What do you think? Is this the wave of the future?

Now this makes more sense to me than your last topic of ciizen journalism. Yes, things are moving toward online delivery and if the post office keeps raising rates the printed newspaper may be history sooner than you think. I checked out eMprint and I like it because is still reads like a newspaper. Great idea ...
