Printweek has reported that NewsTec is cancelled.

This has been for newspapers. My guess is that few expect many new presses to be bought. In December 2005, Jeff Jarvis wrote about "the last presses" in his blog and for the Guardian.

You know what? Maybe he has got a point. There, value added blogging. Not just repeating a link.

So if the newspaper discussion has been moved from 2009 to 2010 it is reasonable to assume technology scope will include blogs, video etc for "news organisations" as Jeff Jarvis describes them.

Printweek has a new and improved website where the comments relate to the news. The previous Printing World site was a bit sketchy as a discussion board. I have added a comment to the report on the latest ABC figures for UK newspaper circulation. The report seems more aware of the issues than some stories in magazines about print. What is the general take on media within Haymarket?, I wonder. They seem still dedicated to hard copy. Only time will tell.
