Continuing what happened to Cross Media?

I did a post on LinkedIn recently after LikeMinds in Exeter. Jason Miller from LinkeIn surprised me by announcing that the "best bits" of the online marketing blogs are now available in a print magazine. Intended as quarterly. This reminded me about "Cross Media" but I could not find any recent links. So I wonder what has happened and how it is described.

There has been one comment, from Gee Ranasinha-

I think for most marketers 'cross channel' has morphed into today's 'mot du jour': omnichannel".
I understood cross-channel to mean repurposing content originally designed for one channel, into another. Creating a print ad, email newsletter and landing page for the same campaign, for example. For me the "omnichannel' approach is taking a more holistic view of content - i.e. not 'imposing' (if you'll pardon the printing pun) a potentially restrictive structure on content until it's destined for output. It comes from a position that most customers navigate across numerous touchpoints prior to purchase.
An omnichannel approach ostensibly places higher value on customer experience, with a network of channels working together and interdependently, with the goal of a more consistent (and hopefully positive) brand experience.

This makes a lot of sense. I will check out how it connects with the Print Show in Telford and IPEX at the NEC.

Benny Lambda and the threat to books and newspapers. Yesterday at IPEX Benny Lands repeated an argument from interview with Digital Printer - books and newspapers are only 80 billion dollars of an 800 billion dollar industry. So although there is a threat from the internet there is still plenty left. No objection from Frank Romano so ,maybe this is now accepted. Comment welcome.
