The Printed Blog: Fatally flawed or just flawed?Stick_Fig writes "Today saw the demise of an interesting experiment, The Printed Blog. Since I'm a newspaper guy into crazy approaches (including once working at another Web-to-print experiment, Bluffton Today) and it launched at the same time I launched my own experimental news site, I've kept close tabs on it. Some have called its basic idea fatally flawed, while the creator, Joshua Karp, claims that he had no venture capital support. I feel that the idea didn't go far enough — while it was a great start, it just printed blogs and Flickr photos wholesale instead of focusing on the traditional newspaper functions of editing and packaging content. With more time, it might've gone that way, but sadly, it didn't. Was the idea of printing blog posts on dead trees just plain stupid, or can something be salvaged from Karp's experiment?"
