The End of an Era

The end of print media seems to be barreling at us faster and faster as publications continue to fold and layoffs wipe out news rooms across the country. In this article the New York Times addresses the fact that, yes, I am reading an article about old media’s decline, online. But still, I am one of those people who loves reading an actual paper (I mean can you really do crossword puzzles online?) or flipping through an actual magazine. Despite the fact that I have turned from journal to blog and I am, oh yeah, a web editor — I am an old-fashioned girl in this regard (don’t tell my boss). So the end of print bums me out and makes me long for days when I thought it was cool to have a pager.
