A few weeks ago, I wrote an issue of Cabot Wealth Advisory about the state of the newspaper industry and it generated a lot of insightful comments from readers. I took some extra time to think about the various points that were brought up because, last weekend, I took a trip back to my alma mater, Syracuse University, for a staff reunion of my college newspaper, The Daily Orange.

The weekend was billed as a chance to reconnect with former staffers and to meet and impart wisdom to the students currently at the helm of the paper. This was accomplished in several educational sessions run by alumni that dealt with interactive Web graphics, alternate story forms and other ideas on how to translate newspaper skills to the Web and niche publications.

I enjoyed seeing my old friends and going to all of our favorite Syracuse restaurants--from Dinosaur Bar B Que to Doc's Little Gem Diner--the weekend was primarily spent eating. I also toured the new communications building on campus, which includes a state of the art mock newsroom and has the First Amendment etched in glass on the windows.

I was surprised by how little the campus, and the newspaper, had changed, but I was most surprised by how enthusiastic the students were about journalism, especially outside the traditional newspaper model.

I expected long faces and a lot of pessimism, but instead was greeted with excitement about online media and the way it will not only help continue the tradition of journalism, but will actually improve the craft. This gave me hope that while print newspapers may be on the way out (see the recent news of the New York Times threatening to shutter the Boston Globe), I have no doubt that journalism will continue in one form or another. And that's a very good thing, in my book (or blog).

So I'm going to back away from the doomsday scenarios and recognize that while journalism may take a different shape than we're used to, it will be around for a long time to come.

Cabot Wealth Advisory 4/7/09 - Where the G-20 Told Me to Invest

On Tuesday, we heard from Nathan Slaughter of StreetAuthority who wrote about the success of the Group of 20 summit and why the decisions made there led him to believe gold stocks are a good investment. Nathan is expecting a solid rally in the next year or two based on economic conditions and a look at the bigger picture.
