Howard’s 8 mistakes newspapers have made

Howard Owens has a great list of mistakes that newspapers have made when it comes to online, including three of my favourites:

1. Newspapers were slow to embrace blogging.

2. Fear kept newsrooms from allowing comments on stories.

3. Newspapers did not want to believe that the web was pull rather than push.

Go read the whole thing. Nice job, Howard.
