Jeff Jarvis has started an interactive spreadsheet where he is challenging readers to reduce the headcount of a large news organisation by 30%.

Not only is it an interesting exercise in rethinking modern news priorities, but it also showcases Google Doc’s spreadsheet application really effectively.
