Dawson explains on his blog that the factors driving the pace of newspapers' extinction are both global and national.

He alleges US papers will disappear in the next seven years, while newspapers in Britain and Iceland will cease approximately two years later.

However, the next country in line is Norway, where Dawson predicts that the printed media will disappear by 2020.

"The big overlay in all of this is we'll get digital paper that combines all the qualities of print and the benefits of digital within the next decade,” he tells theaustralian.com.au.
