The future of newspapers, as seen through a Twitter feed

getthepictureI read this quote in the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Twitter Feed ( the AJC (Twitter, @AJC) is the main paper here in Atlanta))

We’re trying to pin down the name of the College Park recording studio. It’s at the 3200 Block of E. Main St. Can you help us?

and I started wondering if the future of news was as either a medium (like FaceBook) or as the medium + the lead collaborator.  I.E. the newspaper supplies the forum (in the form of a website, and the print service, whatever that winds up being) and serves as the lead collaborator.   To use a sports analogy, The future of newspapers is like a company that owns a baseball park, and provides a full time pitcher.

Just a random though.
