Who is Dan?
Brother Weinberger writes,
Dan: The real threat to traditional journalism isn't blogging. It's eBay, the largest classified ads publisher.
I'm guessing Dan Gillmor, because he is a digerati with first-name status.
Anyway, he is absolutely right. Classified advertising accounts for 50 percent of the profits of newspapers, and eBay is taking that franchise away. Without classifieds, newspapers are not a business. They are charity cases.
