A handful of worthwhile media/econ items from this week: Hirschorn's doomsday NYT scneario (dead by May?), Dumenco's valuation of HuffPo ($2 million, not $200 million?), Battelle's media/tech predictions (Yahoo & AOL merge?), Shafer's history lesson of newspapers (did they have it coming?), and Shirky's media forecast (on-demand publishing?).
