Do some newspapers have a death wish? Allegra Jordan, managing director of the consulting firm, Innovation Abbey, asks that provocative question based on her recent experience advising media and technology companies, as well as nonprofit groups that are helping communities around the world rebuild and renew themselves.
What do you know today that you wish you had known five years ago? That’s the question I posed recently to four of the most innovative publishers and editors of community newspapers in the country.
