vanishing technologies- newspapers
dfordoom wrote in anti21stcentury
We've talked about disappearing technology. One that hasn't yet vanished, but seems likely to do so within the next decade, is the newspaper. I have mixed feelings about this. There are plenty of newspapers that I would be happy to see disappear down the plug-hole of history, and in fact I was overjoyed to see Sydney's two afternoon tabloid newspapers cease publication.

But I fear their place will simply be taken by the more trashy parts of the internet, and we'll end up with something even trashier than the tabloids.

What do you think? Will you be sorry to see newspapers go?

I think I will be. I think I prefer to sit down and read a paper than go to a news site. I recently watched an interview online about Windows 7, but other than that, I mostly ignore current events altogether. It's just nice sometimes to be able to pick up a newspaper anytime, anywhere, as it happens to be lying around - something you can't do with net sites.
