When you love something, you worry. Sometimes, you worry a lot.

But here's something encouraging in the journalism world. The Ann Arbor News (for which I interned in the Summer of 2000) is closing in July.

That's not the encouraging part.

The cool thing is the company is launching a new online news product that will include a twice weekly print version. Supposedly, there will be a social networking component, tons of interactive and multimedia factors and the (potentially vague) goal of building a news organization of, for and by the community.

At least they're trying something new. It doesn't launch until July, but you can read about their efforts here.
