  • Kevin: Dean Starkman writes about the dramatic increase in content production in the US while at the same time the journalism industry has cut 15,000 jobs. He writes about the dramatic rise in output across newspapers, television and the web. More needs to be written about this. I think that Starkman has written an important piece. The question I have is whether companies will have the courage to take a look at their output and take measured steps to reverse the forward creep that is valuing quality over quantity. Speed is good but shouldn't be the only thing driving journalism in the digital era.
