Title:The impact of technology on the production and distribution of the news. Part 2: Delivering the news of the future
Author(s):Marvin, Carolyn
Subject(s):Future technology trends
Disruptive technologies
News dissemination
News production
Abstract:For the newspaper of the future, the heart of the significant technological change is the computer's transformation of print production, since the same digital signal which prints a newspaper can be converted to other final formats as well such as teletext, or text displayed on a video screen. Because of the great variety of possibilities for print and teletext, in combination or separately, the forms and procedures through which each of us will receive news in the future, if there is a single future, is not yet fixed. But possibilities that have been only speculative for decades are now beginning to take form in public and commercial information systems both here and abroad. The challenge these developments pose to the printed newspaper could very well transform it.
