As a nostalgic indulgence....

"The thinking here is that if vinyl records, straight razors, slow food and absinthe cocktails can all mount comebacks, there is no reason print can’t as well. The keys are marketing, perception and, frankly, snob appeal, plus a few minor tweaks.... Restart the Presses! - Op-Art - NYTimes.com

Times have changed and I read two newspapers every day. First a local rag that dead fish refuse to be wrapped in and the bird will not allow to line his cage it is so lefty but does have jaundiced local news and the WSJ which is written the way a newspaper should be. The paper business has brought its own demise with garbage that isn't worth reading as the TV networks are in the process of learning as they continue in a death spiral.

Happy New Year

This may be sarcasm or silliness, but its exactly how print will have to change to stay in existence. It has to become a luxury product and market its self like it was back when a wealthy man showed his status by the size of his (unread) library.
