The Guardian Media pages include an interview with Gavin O'Reilly in which there is mention that both the Guardian and the Times are making losses. But this is not seen as important enough to explore.
There is nothing on an Irish web strategy for news. Printweek last week had nothing on Cross Media Live but repeated that Northprint attendance was 40% up.
I still think the decision to launch a Cross Media event was welcome and also shows a judgement on what is happening. Print media continue not to report print media all that well. If they just suddenly ended it would be a "shock". As in closure of web offset reported in Printweek.
September 2012 definitely too late. Discussion should start now, maybe IPEX World on LinkedIn.
