119 years ago today

119 years ago today, the first edition of the Wall Street Journal was published. That's quite a run for the now shrinking newspaper industry. Though I find myself buying the New York Times more often, I enjoy the Journal. Especially the Weekend Edition, which is full of good long articles.

Do you think the Journal can last another 119 years? I argue they will, though certainly not in a print form. My belief is that if you produce good content, which I think the Journal does, you will survive. The medium will change (e.g. print --> internet --> osmosis), but good content will always survive.
