The IPad Is Already Killing Journalism

Poynter.org was supposed to have a live chat today talking about jobs for journalists: both new job descriptions in journalism, as well as which companies outside the industry have a use for journalists’ specialized skills. The chat was scheduled for 1pm ET, which was, er, the exact same moment that the Apple iPad press conference was starting.

Guess who won?

A couple minutes later, Grimm updated the post to say: “This chat has been rescheduled. CoverItLive is at capacity at this time due to Apple’s announcement of the iPad.”

Dammit, Jobs!

And yes, yes, it’s gorgeous, phenomenal, “magical,” whatever. Now get back to work.
