Technology Savvy-Eve Asbury
Asbury envisions a near future where everyone will have a color printer in their home and "automatic agents that you program (to) pull in your addition of the New York Times to (have it) sitting in your printer tray every day for you." Such changes, she says, would change the production end of print and its distribution vehicles. "From a print production perspective, I think the only way print is going to remain viable is by welcoming the whole digital age.
"Some of my colleagues frighten me when they say that the old ways are better," she adds. "There are some huge issues for us (that) we cannot afford not to solve; otherwise, we might as well all go home. And I don't want to leave, because I'm having too much fun."
