Jeff Jarvis responds to the Tribune bankruptcy. A smart piece, I think, but I’d quarrel with this:

Some [newspapers] are looking at stopping publishing a day or two (which is just stupid: news never happens on Mondays?).

The point of cutting back days is not that “news never happens on Mondays.” It’s that printing a newspaper isn’t profitable on Mondays. There’d still be a little thing called a web site. I’d think Jeff would be more platform-agnostic on that point.

— CJR interviews neuroscientist Michael Posner about how our attention gets allocated.

— Google, in its omnivorous quest to contain all media, starts hosting searchable archives of magazines. Go search the back issues of New York for some vintage Tom Wolfe.
