Note Quite Two Years Later, “The Daily” Closes


“The bottom line, which should trouble News Corp. and their teams at MySpace and The Daily, is that most web users already have a daily newspaper they can read across all of their devices, and it even includes super-localized updates about the people they care most about. It can be custom-tailored, with very little effort, to their specific interests.  It’s free. It’s huge. It’s Facebook.”

I wrote that in January 2011. Turned out to be sort of  pre-mortem for the enterprise.  Best of luck to all the writers and producers losing work as The Daily shutters.
