A satirical twist to an ongoing eWedNewz story comes in the form of the Man of Steel, Superman, leaving his post a the Daily Planet to become a blogger. For over 70 years Superman fought off crooks and evil-doers that have tried everything to off him. But now, keeping up with reality? the creators of the comic strip suddenly become as true as can be.
After nearly seventy years at the Daily Planet, Clark Kent, a.k.a Superman, packs his bags to go blog.
The dose of reality was fluffed off by publications who make their living from printed products. In fact our questions about the status of print and the tongue in-cheek decision by the man of steel was ignored by most. Instead we received information about the good points of print and printed products. But, as we pointed out, for every one they hand us we can counter with hundreds that agree– print is dying.
Oddly, online polls say print is not dead; yet. Arguments say the world needs digital, it needs print. For example, some sources say you can’t take your Ipod with you in the tub. But then again, who wants to read in a tub? It’s absolutely true that print will never totally fade away. But when is the last time you rushed out to find a new movie release on VHS?
57% of an ongoing independent eWedNewz poll says print will continue to decline from its current position. 29% feel there is not yet enough information to make a call. 14% say print and digital have found harmony.
The writing is on the wall. Hell, if Superman couldn’t hack it, what makes any publication think they will? What do you say? has print and digital found harmony yet?
