My E&P column: Newspapers must think small

By Steve Outing

My “August” column for Editor & Publisher is online now: “Small Should Be ‘The New Big’ for Newspapers and the Web.”

Actually, the column is dated September 5, 2006, but it really is my August column. I was pretty late turning it in toward the end of the month, then E&P took a few days to get it posted. I’ll have a “second” September column before the end of the month. :)

    Good to read your posts again Steve. It was interesting reading your comments in this Daily Camera article the other day:

    Hi, Jesse. Like many people, I suspect, I go in and out of blogging. It\'s simply a time thing; I like to blog, and this time I\'m determined not to let it lapse! :)

    I really enjoyed your Small Should Be ‘The New Big’ for Newspapers and the Web, but being based in Australia am never likely to become an Editor and Publisher subscriber, which seems now to be the only way of getting hold of it. As I also failed to keep a copy at the time you wrote it, I wonder if you’d be kind enough to send me a copy.

    I also work in print, but in magazines, and they’ve peaked in Australia, and are likely to be the next to suffer. I blog on this at, and would love to be able to refer to your piece at some point.

    Hope my request isn’t a problem and that you aren’t offended by me asking.

    In anticipation, thanks, regards and keep up your fine, incisive work.
