Newspapers Looking to New Media

Dow Jones, owner of Wall Street Journal, will be selling off several community papers and investing more into their digital business.

The New York Times has launched a “First Look Blog“:

“This blog gives you the opportunity to talk
with our editors and developers — and let them talk to you — about
new features and services that we’re developing for NYTimes.com.”

Among their first entries was the introduction of the Times Reader:

“Our next new service will be Times Reader, which lets… users read The New York Times electronically, online or offline, in a version that provides an interesting mix of the print and Web reading experience.”
