As someone who left journalism in the 90's for Internet dev (the phase "white males need not apply" was tossed out a lot back then), I'm still cheering for papers like the Spec, even if though they always seemed to hate the web and those like me.

My great frustration with print is they failed to the see Internet as the 1st invention in communications in a century that favored the written word over broadcast... The "paper" has limited space, distribution and high expense; the web should have been a boon, allowing them infinite space, 24hr coverage and eventually gave them video. Instead of assuming the territory, they left to folks like me.

Unfortunately, anytime I tried to suggest these potentials (even offer freely), the technical disinterest & feeling of contempt was too high to overcome.
