Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Newspapers are dead...  On November 18, 2005, I told San Jose State's Journalism school that my son would never subscribe to, nor read, a newspaper.  —  I thoroughly believe that.  I've seen the future of newspapers (and really all printed content) and it isn't print.
Mathew / mathewingram.com/work:

Larry Dignan / Between the Lines:
How journalism education should change  —  Print's dead; newspapers are toast; Dave Winer has some good suggestions to revamp journalism education and bloggers can't get enough of the San Francisco Chronicle's woes.  —  It's a debate-as someone who could be considered professional trained journalist-that frankly tires me out.

The Album, a Commodity in Disfavor  —  Now that the three young women in Candy Hill, a glossy rap and R&B trio, have signed a record contract, they are hoping for stardom.  On the schedule: shooting a music video and visiting radio stations to talk up their music.  —  But the women do not have a CD to promote.

Steve Lohr / New York Times:
Slow Down, Brave Multitasker, and Don't Read This in Traffic  —  Confident multitaskers of the world, could I have your attention?  —  Think you can juggle phone calls, e-mail, instant messages and computer work to get more done in a time-starved world?  Read on, preferably shutting out the cacophony of digital devices for a while.

Chris Ziegler / Engadget:
Samsung m620 to be christened "UpStage" for Sprint  —  So it won't be called the "Flipper" or the "Ultra Music" — no, it seems Sprint wanted a name all its own for the very unique m620 musicphone from Samsung.  When it launches at CTIA this week, the two-faced handset will get slapped with the name …
