Two Scary Stats

I thought these two stats for 2009 were scary:
“The presses stopped forever at no less than 142 daily and weekly newspapers in 2009, a nearly threefold increase over the number of titles succumbing in the prior year.”
“More than 90,000 people … lost their jobs in the various print publishing industries in the last 12 months.”
More here.
Let’s make 2010 better.
