Media is changing, will maritime media change too?

This may not be a total maritime story but we think its worth discussing.Yesterday the Wall Street Journal launched a new feature for people living in the metropolitan New York area. The Journal now has a metro New York section in direct competition with the New York Times.

So what does this have to do with Amver or the maritime sector? Well, what if Rupert Murdoch decided to launch a maritime insert? Would you read it? Would it cut into Lloyd's List or Tradewinds circulation?

What do you think?

Personally, I think that maritime media can, but won't follow suit, at least not as quickly. After all, it is relatively stable and functional as is, and the demand for change isn't nearly as pressing as in regular media. It is also worth note that adjustments such as this (http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=94ZTNN4Y75B8&preview=article&linkid=15b309d6-c4a3-4da9-b9d2-aeef8e51a99f&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d) won't be nearly as practical in regards to maritime media either.

That's just my opinion. Only future knows.
