New Media Venture Turns Bloggers Into Print Journalists

As old media races to catch up with the Web and figure out how to successfully monetize print content online, one publication is taking a drastically different approach: web to print.

The Printed Blog, a
startup founded and funded by former business productivity software
entrepreneur Joshua Karp, is launching a twice-daily free print
newspaper in cities across the country aggregating localized blog posts.

“Why hasn’t anyone tried to take the best content and bring it offline?” said Karp, who thinks print media is far from dying. —Chris Snyder, Wired
