When Kara Says AllThingsD, She Means It


A few weeks ago, our buddy Dylan Stableford asked us to contribue to his 2008 media predictions story for Folio magazine.

In essence, I said: More writers will move from print to digital. Not exactly going out on a limb, I know, but we’ve already seen one high profile move, and we’re only two days into 2008.

The WSJ’s Kara Swisher announced yesterday that from now on, she’s strictly digital:

First, after almost eight months of daily blogging for this site, I think it is safe to say that I will probably never write another thing professionally for a print publication and will spend the rest of my career -such that it will be- publishing online only.

Why? Besides saving all those trees, of course – which, let me start off the new year by being completely honest, never occurred to me until just this very second – it’s simple and obvious: The future of all media is digital going forward.

Who’s next?
