RIP print media

Reading a newspaper

Reading a newspaper

Print is dead. It isn’t dying. There is no chance of a resurrection. It’s done.


Save the trees!

Or is it? While many still believe that technology will save all, there’s still something that can be said about picking up a newspaper and reading long-form articles or books without the use of electricity (other than lighting in the room). While there may never be a need or ability for print media to make a full recovery, there will (likely) always be a need to chop down more trees and squeeze for squids for their ink.
