Steve Outing: "A profound moment of disappointment — when I think my mind finally lost the last tiny shread of hope for the newspaper industry — was this summer, when during a reinveinting-news conference I had a few minutes for a private conversation with the CEO of one of the largest U.S. newspaper companies.

He said he didn’t expect to earn much from the web side with the pay-wall strategy."
