  1. It’s time to grow up. Adapt with the times. In crisis there exists opportunity. We are in an era where SMG student must STEP IT UP, along with I/T concentrators and marketing majors to bring the Daily Free Press into the 21st century.

  2. The Daily Free Press is for reporting, not for creating the finest most sellable newspaper. Not that I’m involved with it personally, but why would it need marketing and management teams? The point is to report on things, not to sell the reporting. Obviously you want people to be interested but the story should be what is interesting.

    On the other hand, I can see the benefits of putting the paper on the internet or something, but it’s not necessarily inherently better. I mean, it’s readily available to most students for free already, so I think if they were interested in it they’d check it out. I guess it might make it more interactive for the students, but that would mean that people would be working on it as a website or whatever. So I can see the need for IT people, but I don’t know about marketing/management necessarily.

    Also, just what are they adapting to? The lack of interest in what is going on around us? Or what?
