The Ten-thousandth 'Death Of Print Publishing' Column

Posted at 7:29AM Tuesday 08 Apr 2014

Congratulations! You are reading the ten-thousandth online article about the death of print, as tallied by our crack team of people who thought that sounded like an impressive number.

I realize I'm walking down a well-trod path here, but this column was written partly because, like you, I am rather sick of the Print Is Dead!-No It Isn't! tug-of-war. I want to kill the argument as humanely as possible, by recommending a slightly less Manichaean approach to the question. In the process I hope to complain a lot.
