Oops! R H Donnelley, publisher of Yellow Pages files for bankruptacy. It's not about blablabla End of Print blablabla

It's about a large organization that couldn't get out of it's own way to be able to turn their bugs into features. It's an old continuing story. It's the Goliath and the Tower of Babel problem. We're not going to have a recovery, we are going to have a reorganization.

It usually happens every 500 years or so. - roughly 1500, 1000, 500, 600 BC, . . . 3,000 BC. It's the flock of Black Swans. The last time the right person at the right place at the right time was Gutenberg. Re RH Donnelly the game is to watch who gets to pick up the pieces.

Re everyone else, what is going to be the new Gutenberg? I'm betting that it's going to have something to do with wireless Print.
