Seattle newspaper closes print production; goes online-only
Seattle's Post-Intelligencer has just become the largest newspaper to switch to a solely online format. From now on its readers won't get newsprint-covered hands but will be at risk of eye strain instead.
Seeing how many media outlets have closed down during this economic downturn, it's great that the paper is able to keep going at all - and I'm a huge supporter of online publications. But it's sad when a change in content delivery is forced, rather than chosen.
Do you still buy your local paper, or given the cost to the environment of traditional publishing, are you happier reading it online?
