Good piece, Joe. As an old newsman and a tech pro these days, I agree that Bezos is going to bring some thoughtful and much-needed innovation to the mashup space among tablets, newspapers, eBooks and other similar content. One thing that occurred to me as I read your piece is that local newspapers in particular are weathering the Internet storm fairly well as a rule. But accessing their content digitally is always an uneven experience. I could see Bezos using Amazon's ability to identify locale and to work with other publishers to bring local coverage to the Post context on a tablet. With an interesting revenue model, he could catapult the Post into being a news *platform* For this and a number of other reasons, i'm pretty excited to see where Bezos drives this horse. The big stuff is going to be something we haven't even imagined.
