Up at 4 AM testing our editorial disaster recovery processes. So far, so good, but a few small adjustments to make before we can rubber stamp the DR plan as sufficient.

Get to work on a story corruption issue, in the office, this evening. Luckily, Howard Decker is here to, so I can share the fun with someone. Misery loves company.

Are ebooks really that big? Appears to be a sound way to recycle content for additional revenue.

I see the strength of ebooks, they are a great tool. I wonder how reliable of a platform it will be for newspapers to recycle news content in ebooks. An example could be at The Houston Chronicle, with the last shuttle mission. The Chronicle could potentially create an ebook with the extensive library of stories they have written on the shuttle program and sell this for additional revenue. I am not convinced that the number of purchases would justify the effort to create the ebook. Maybe.

Interesting how small newspapers have done well, while large papers struggle with revenue losses. Here is one perspective:

I do not agree with the premise that newspapers should not have a website, but the decision to provide news content for free on the web was a bad choice for large papers in retrospect. What if they would have charged for web content from the start of the web news boom?

Glad I could enlighten you, Jennifer. :)
Kat, PERL has only been a source of programming happiness for me, never sadness. I am even finding the joy of PHP, a close cousin to PERL.

Content gathering and development is going to make big money in the future. The IT created tools that streamline this will take a good chunk of the money!
