Newspaper men started predicting the digital revolution with amazing accuracy as long ago as 1992, way before the internet got going properly.

“The Post is not in a pot of water, and we’re smarter than the average frog,” Kaiser wrote. “But we do find ourselves swimming in an electronic sea where we could eventually be devoured — or ignored as an unnecessary anachronism. Our goal, obviously, is to avoid getting boiled as the electronic revolution continues.”
