Off Topic: Christian Science Monitor to Drop Print Daily in April

I have a few connections to the Christian Science Monitor. My high school history teacher was a Christian Scientist so I learned a bit about the mother church here in Boston. And like most kids in the region spent a good deal of time in the Mapparium, an “inside out” glass globe you could walk inside. (A must see when touring the city!) Only when I reach adulthood did I read the newspaper. I liked it so much I “borrowed” the Monitor part for my first publication, GIS Monitor.

Tuesday I heard that come April 2009 the daily version of the paper will be replaced by an online and e-mail version, leaving just a weekend print edition. It’s not news that print papers are having a tough time. Even the New York Times is not in the clear, now holding a “sell” rating from at least one analyst. I applaud the folks behind the Monitor for re-organizing such that the content can remain, even if the print version goes away. I’m sure we’ll lose some papers altogether as the economy and technology change; I just don’t want to see papers of record, like CS Monitor and the Times disappear due to poor business decisions.
