For print newspapers its all over in a decade

How long will Newspapers last? According to Futurenet – not long.  Their fascinating graphic plots that for most of us, ten years is all we can look forward to.  They even explain why.  Ten years ago we were in the wake of the dot com bubble bursting.  There were no smart phones, no tablets, little broadband and a wave of hope that all the web hype was just that -hype.  We now know that isn’t true, and if Futurenet are to be believed, these are the Swan Song years of the print newspaper.  Soon newspapers in print will only exist in your attic -stacked next to the vinyl record collection and the Soda Stream.
