Another Big Name Weighs In

Thanks to MobyLives for directing me to Dave Egger's much-discussed statement on how print media can survive, joined (if not quite led) by McSweeney's newest initiative: a newspaper. He's hoping to turn around that sinking ship, noting:
As long as newspapers offer less each day— less news, less great writing, less graphic innovation, fewer photos— then they're giving readers few reasons to pay for the paper itself. With our prototype, we aim to make the physical object so beautiful and luxurious that it will seem a bargain at $1.

I don't have time for commentary now but perhaps later, from me or from Christopher. For now, jump over to Gawker (sorry to send you there...) and enjoy!
