The signs are everywhere around the web – the printed newspaper is on the downward slide. A couple of pointers from my Twitter feed showcases the evidence:
There is evidence closer to home. I notice every time I am offered a free Advertiser after a quick stop for groceries at Foodland and I certainly noticed when the same newspaper lobbed on my lawn for a week with a letter compelling me to continue “enjoying” the convenience of this service.
Unlike my parents-in-law who have religiously paid for home delivery of the daily paper for decades, I probably won’t notice or care when the paper version ceases to exist. Oh, and one more link for posterity’s sake.
