The Meta-Newspaper


General Culture

Fred Ritchin makes the case for a meta-newspaper: “Given the growing desire to see what is important in a more coherent manner among busy readers, perhaps now is the time to begin charging for a subscription to such a meta-newspaper-and distribute some of the income to those working in the field and, where appropriate, those paying for them to be there. The world is changing at too fast a pace for us not to consider such a strategy-going beyond a list of what is out there to a presentation site where each piece complements the next and leaves us with a greater understanding of how our world is evolving.”
