Rocky Mountain News…Closed Down

Posted by mikenopolis on March 3, 2009

I’m really hating the economic downfall. I’m sad and lost. I just found out that the Rocky Mountain Newspaper is no longer operating. Having spent most of my youth in Denver and being a paper boy in the snow, I grew up with the Denver Post and my Rocky and now one of them is closing its chapter. I’m not sure what we can do, it’s unbelievable knowing that there will be a day where we will no longer “read the paper”. We are at an age of instant gratification and I am one of the ones to blame. I read my news and blogs on an RSS feed. I say no when the local paper calls me for a subscription. I get and read books on my Sony eReader (PRS-500). I use my iPhone to check the weather, stock and traffic, I listen to my radio shows as commercial free podcasts, I watch TV without commercials with my DVR. What could we do? Should we “slow down” and pick up a paper, buy a book, listen to the radio and watch the news. Look at the ads and commercials and support these companies? I think of myself as a “technophile” but I can’t help but think that this is a step towards the wrong side….*Confused*

Here’s the “farewell” video from Rocky Mountain News:

To all those who’ve lost their jobs, careers, purpose in life because of people like me. I’m Sorry.
