Before I put forward my own thoughts, I thought it would be interesting to see what people had to say about this from a local newspaper's point of view.
Brian Greenberg comments on Jeff's blog:
Right tool for the job, folks. The past mission of the newspaper is not the future mission. News reporting wants to be immediate and online, and so it shall be. Investigative reporting, well-researched background pieces or profiles, long-term analyses - these can be online as well, but they can also be in print (newsprint, magazines, even books).That's one thought, but what role - if any - do you see papers like the Leicester Mercury playing in the future?

PS Brian Greenberg also has a great 'favourite quote' on his profile: “In theory, practice and theory are basically the same. In practice, they are not.”
