"John Robinson is an unlikely revolutionary."
Editor and Publisher has an article on the News & Record public square project. It's out in print, and posted behind the paywall...and available online to us plebes later this week.
Until then, here's the teaser from the E&P website: John Robinson is an unlikely revolutionary. He's the establishment, really. For the last six years he's been editor of the News & Record in Greensboro, N.C., where he's worked for two decades. And he certainly doesn't like the implication he's some kind of radical. "It's kind of embarrassing," he says, "as I sit here in a suit and tie and short hair." But to those who spend time thinking about how, even if, newspapers will survive in a super-connected, empowered, non-intermediated, and -- here's the word -- blogified world, John Robinson is on the barricades.
Can't wait to see the whole thing.
