Generations that deem the act of reading on print essential are disappearing, and while the new ones regard online reading as a natural thing, they will never know that sensual world where communication requires more senses than just the sight.

What really matters now is whether the reader is wise enough to carefully pick his readings and turn them into his own intellectual benefit. If newspapers continue avoiding rescuing journalism with the available digital tools, no miracle will save them from obsolesce and disappearance. On the contrary, if both digital and print realms open a new broader dialogue and are able to find formulas that allow them to coexist, the reader will be the utmost beneficiary.
