The American Society of Newspaper Editors is thinking of eliminating “paper” from its name.
(And I’m called revolutionary for talking about news post-paper?)
Give it a while and “Editors” will probably have to go too, or they will have to let everyone in.
Yeah…once they drop the word “editors” it will just be “the American Society” which makes a lot of sense since anyone and everyone can contribute news reports, videos, photos, etc.
While we’re at it, NAA could stay NAA and lose the paper.
I suggested this back at a NAA conference in 1999 or so and was *this* close to being burned at the stake.

and not a decade too soon.
To me, that actually makes their moniker more truthful. I think they’ve been more focused on editing the actual NEWS we get, as opposed to editing how it’s presented, for too many years.
In response to this wonderful news, I wrote a short blog entry giving a birief history of the “National Microfilm Association” morphing through a series of name changes in response to changing technology. Today, they are in the process of becoming the “Enterprise Content Management Association”… Each of the four names they’ve used reflected changes in the technology of their area and, as a result, increased scope and opportunity for their members.

Well, the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press are down to 3 days of paper. Don’t know how they’ll call it. Some of us will really miss having paper in our hands, so I hope they don’t get rid of paper–which is the reason for the “newspaper” change. What would I do without the Sunday NYTimes–in paper?
So. . . news editors, not newspaper editors
the Wurlitzer rather than a Cassavant
Google library rather than Balliol
Yamaha rather than Steinway
Pioneer rather than Bang & Olufsen
Maybe some Luddite DNA resides within…
But I do prefer jet to propeller.
