Jeff Jarvis: Do nothing, you’re doomed – but there’s still time

Jeff Jarvis: Do nothing, you’re doomed – but by Scott Matthewman

Jeff Jarvis always puts up compelling arguments in the ‘old’-versus-’new’ media debate. [Friday's piece](http://www.buzzmachine.com/2007/08/17/is-local-news-doomed-naw/) looks at a report that says that local newspapers are most threatened by the internet. Replace ‘local’ with ‘specialist’ and the argument (and counter-argument) remains the same — and Jarvis’ points about how to succeed in the future still apply.
