This is a milestone:

This year, for the first time, advertisers have spent more online than they have on print newspaper ads.

Digital-marketing research firm eMarketer said U.S. spending on online ads will reach $25.8 billion in 2010, compared with $22.8 billion on print ads...

This could be the most hopeful financial news I've read this week. As this trend continues, does this mean that a few internet media sites will be able to draw enough advertiser money to somehow achieve profitability? Or has Google eaten all the big money, leaving just the crumbs for the content providers?
