Britannica Blog's excellent "Newspapers & the Net" forum

The Britannica Blog has been running an absolutely terrific series of essays on “Newspapers & the Net,” which is examining the questions: "Are newspapers dead? Should we care?" The series kicks off with essays from three of my absolute favorite bloggers: Nick Carr, Clay Shirky and Jay Rosen, who is the author of the amazing blog, PressThink. I highly recommend that you read all the installments, however. Here's the rundown of participants and essays in the series thus far:
