When Newspapers Die, Where Do We Bring the Flowers?

There’s one thing about this whole death of newspapers thing that troubles me: where do you go to mourn? Answer: Toronto, where you’ll find this:

Newspaper memorial

Or you can make your own dead newspaper memorial.

(Thanks, Make.)

It's not the death of newspapers, its the death of ad-driven newspapers that no longer have much meaning to readers. There's a big difference. The no-ad newspaper that will replace the dailies, now going out of business, will be a major part of the art and media revolution. Journalism is ready for a revolution to clear out the abuses of the mainstream dailies.
