Nutshell: Newspapers will be connected to the Internet

Vision: Today every news department is trying to figure transition from paper to Web. The real revolution will come when we realize the Internet is actually going to "paper." Newspapers as we know them will change dramatically when mobile and paper-style electronic technologies [such as e-paper] unite to bring us a device that can give us news every day and also allows us to use Internet navigation to complete the information presented.
