How Technology Has Affected Writing and Journalism - podcast

Journalist and author Hiawatha Bray explores how technology has changed writing and journalism. Over the last decade, many journalists have lost their jobs. Not because of a lack of readers, but because of a collapse of advertising revenue. People still read, they just don't pay for it. One example is the decline of revenue from classified ads in newspapers, which used to bring in nearly one-third of the newspaper's funds. Technology replaced the need for that kind of advertising. Publishers may be publishing fewer books now, but the books are still getting out there through self-publishing. The challenge, however, is how the reader can find these self-published books.
