I was sitting at the keyboard recently and all of a sudden was stricken with an idea:
How about bunches of specially selected folks from the Courant newsroom get together — maybe behind closed doors — and come up with ways to save the paper? I think it would be best if they focused primarily on innovative ways to improve the online content in particular, since the print product may not have much of a future anyway. I think they should try to get all this done by, say, Friday, just so it doesn’t drag on.
Oh, wait. That’s already being done.
Since those talks are confidential, however, I will offer this blog as an alternative forum and outlet for innovative thinking among those of you who may not have been invited to the pow-wow but wish for the nation’s oldest continuously published newspaper to continue being so.
